In hopes to help the "gridlock" situation in London, mayor Boris Johnson launches a bike rental program which will hopefully reduce the backed up traffic.

With 4,700 bikes available, cyclists can feel free to rent from any of the 400 docking stations in London. With the first month being a membership-only program, Boris Johnson plans to open up this bike hire to the general public in another month. While being a great way to save the environment, this program also saves you time from sitting in traffic!
