Default Cycle Hire south western expansion goes live today

* An additional 2,000 bikes and more than 150 new docking stations
around Clapham Junction, Hammersmith and Putney.
* An increase to the area covered of more than 50%. The scheme now
covers over 100 sq km of central and inner London

The blurb says London has the second largest such scheme in Europe -
presumably Paris being in pole position.

Just had a horrible thought... Fockstons, er sorry, Foxtons becoming the
new sponsor of the scheme... shiver!

Thanks. There is no way this is a 50% increase in area covered! It looks
around a third to me.

What's wrong with Foxtons? I have enjoyed their Mini liveries for years.

Avoid Foxtons at all costs. They're hopeless as estate agents and as
management agents. They're all image and no substance.

If my mother was still alive and i was still working in Westminster that
would be useful, with docking stations close to my childhood home, sadly now
sold. But it's too late now. :-(

My mother counted herself lucky to have got her letting out of their
clutches. Expensive to landlords and tenants alike.
