Bring Boris Bikes to the Mall

      London, United Kingdom

Since its launch, Barclays Cycle Hire (Boris Bikes) has proved hugely popular. But in the area of St James's Park, there are no docks, despite being an area busy with tourists and workers. Creating a docking station here would ease pressure on other docks, enable more journeys and increase access to this historic part of London. Having rejected the Mall as a location in 2009, we call on TfL to work with Royal Parks and Westminster Council to revisit this site for installation of a docking station in the next phase of the scheme's expansion. A Mall docking station would enhance the area's character and enable more people to enjoy it.

      The Mall has a great cycle lane, but to reach the nearest dock at the end, one must negotiate Trafalgar Sq, one of the most scary places to cycle in London. There is clear need for a dock and the Mall, and also space. Please install one.

      I live in and travel around London. Cycing is the way to travel that is best for me and the city. The hire scheme has no down sides, except for holes in the network. More bicycles on the Mall cannot be bad.

      The capital needs more access to cycling in every form. These bikes are proving successful and people should be able to collect and leave them at all major tourist points in London. To miss this area is simply illogical.

      We need to encourage environmentally friendly forms of transport in all cities, London is an example to other cities across the country as well as abroad.

      The Mall should be for people not cars.
