Try one out today or tomorrow without paying a penny
Boris bikes are six years old today, and to celebrate, Transport for London (TfL) is offering the public free use all weekend.
The bikes, first sponsored by Barclays but now known as Santander Cycles, are free for 30 minutes all weekend, with a special code, available here(link is external).
Be aware though – while you can make as many separate free 30-minute journeys in 24 hours as they like, any extra minutes after the first half hour will be charged to the card they used to take out the bike.
TfL said more than 52 million journeys had been made on the cycles since their launch in July 2010.
