The Vaults, Montague Cl, London SE1 9DA, UK – 020 7378 6669

Good service, staff very efficient and helpful. Bikes in good working order and comfortable (though saddle quite firm). Overall good value for money and will use service again.

I rented three hybrid bikes for myself and my parents for the Prudential Freecycle event. I was pleasantly surprised with the top quality service and hardware I got for a very decent price! The bikes were modern, light-weight and perfectly maintained. This is also definitely one of the best placed bike shops in all of London for that event.

Evans Cycles

I needed a pair of cycling shoes and John provided an excellent service. The first pair he found for me fitted well and he even took the time to fit the cleats. He also provided additional advice on how the shoe should fit/feel on the pedal and recommended ‘tweaks’, as necessary. Excellent service all round and highly recommended!

Had my bike fixed here today. Customer service was outstanding, everyone was so friendly and helpful from the woman on the desk to the people fixing the bikes in the workshop. Tim, who fixed my bike, was so helpful and did a great job. So quick and so impressed. Thank you so so much. Seriously rate the service here and would 100% come back if I had any other issues. Everyone went the extra mile.

Great place to buy a road bike. They have a nice guy called John, excellent mechanic Damien and a UCL graduate sales man !

Absolutely amazing. I just had a small problem and I came by just before closing... still, they decided to help me and didn't even charge anything. Fantastic.

Una premessa fondamentale: non si tratta di un servizio di noleggio in senso stretto; concettualmente consiste, in realtà, nell'utilizzo quasi gratuito (due sterline per 24 ore) delle bici presso i numerosissimi stalli ma solo per brevi spostamenti (max 30 minuti) in modo da consentire a tutti di poter usufruire del servizio mediante continue ricollocazioni presso gli stalli ed equilibrata e costante presenza di bici negli stessi. Spiego meglio perché, nelle sintetiche istruzioni sulle colonnine, si rischiano fraintendimenti con successivi addebiti non proprio economici, come anche già evidenziato in alcuni commenti critici: 1) scegliere "noleggio bici"; 2) impostare per 24 ore; 3) scegliere quante bici noleggiare max 4; 4) inserire la carta di credito e autorizzare il pagamento (2 sterline per bici). Non son sicuro se la sequenza sia esatta ma, nel caso di mio errore, l'intuito aiuterà 😏! La colonnina rilascerà un tot di ricevute (pari al numero di bici noleggiate) con impresso un codice di 5 cifre da inserire nella postazione della bici prescelta; inserito il codice si illuminerà un led verde (a meno che la postazione non sia fuori uso, nel qual caso si sceglierà un'altra postazione) e la bici verrà liberata per l'utilizzo gratuito per mezz'ora, superata la quale vi verranno addebitate altre due sterline per bici e, così, di mezz'ora in mezz'ora. Per evitare questi questi ulteriori addebiti, prima dello scadere dei 30 minuti, ricollocate la bici in uno stallo (con un inserimento un po' secco, attendendo che il led diventi verde) e, dopo 5 minuti, vi verrà data la possibilità di riprenderne un'altra con la stessa procedura iniziale solo che, una volta inserita la carta di credito già utilizzata, il sistema vi riconoscerà indicandovi anche quanto manca allo scadere delle 24 ore iniziali e, pertanto, non addebitandovi ulteriori costi (se poi vi risultasse troppo stressante e macchinoso questo continuo restituire/riprendere, due sterline ogni tanto in più non vi cambieranno la vita 😏) Importante, comunque, non fare scadere le 24 ore perché potrebbero esserci, a quel punto, sanzioni. Per avere piena conoscenza delle numerosissime postazioni in città, raccomando di scaricare l'app "Cycle Hire" sponsorizzata da Santander che indica anche quante bici da prendere e quanti stalli vuoti (per ricollocare quelle in vostro possesso) troverete negli stalli; a mio parere è utilissima anzi, fondamentale per il miglior utilizzo del servizio! Tanto per dare un'idea, un giorno ho percorso un notevole tratto, da Kensington palace fino all'Abbazia di Westminster, senza ulteriori costi, attraversando gli interi Hide Park e Green Park, trovando persino all'interno dei parchi (con piacevoli soste presso i bellissimi laghetti pieni di cigni e papere) stalli di noleggio. Per quanto riguarda la mia esperienza, un servizio davvero eccellente. Spero di essere stato sufficientemente esauriente... buone pedalate.

Adorei... A bike tornou o trajeto mais rápido e divertido.

London Green Cycles

Chester Court, Albany St, London NW1 4BU, UK – 020 7935 6934

I have come here many times for smaller fixes, and they have always done it on the spot in a very friendly and competent manner, and sometimes just for a fiver or a tenner. But really for any kind of repairs I would highly recommend this place.

Very knowledgable, welcoming, easy, helpful, efficient. Wide range of cargo bike stock and accessories- like no other shop we tried for this type of bike. Alex really knew his stuff and took the time to show me the various models. You can even ride before you buy as they have plenty of models for hire- this was really useful. Tried the bike Tues, called up to buy Weds, ready to collect midday Thurs having been serviced and set up. Still early days with the bike but with a free service in 4-6 weeks we do t envisage any problems!

I did the Love London tour and really enjoyed it! Ollie was our tour guide and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. I am a cyclist in the states but have never cycled in such a busy city - you will go through some heavy traffic areas and busy pedestrian areas so I wouldn’t recommend this tour for young kids. Overall it was fantastic and I got to see many great sights in a London!

Zelda was great! Our tour was delayed by viewing all the events of the 100th Anniversary of the RAF at Buckingham Palace. Saw the 100 aircraft flyby Trafalgar Square and even the Queen!! We volunteered to make up some time on the return, but Zelda couldn't resist stopping and showing us each sight, even though we were about 1.5 hours delayed. Thank you so much for the highlight of our London trip.
