Santander cycle hire

How does it work?

Transport for London and Santander operate a docked bike sharing scheme in the south of the borough. Users register at a docking station, then the bikes can be picked up and dropped off at any station within London.

Santander docking stations in Hackney are generally found around Regent’s Canal, and in and around Victoria Park. More information can be found on the Santander cycles app or on TfL.

How much does it cost?

It costs £2 to access a bike for 24 hours. The first 30 minutes of each journey is free and after that costs £2 per 30 minutes. If you become a member, you can use the bikes all year round for £90.
