Did you know that today marks the 5th anniversary of the London Cycle Hire scheme? Known as ‘Boris Bikes’, there are more than 10,000 throughout the city which can be hired from as little as £2 from one of the 700 stations across London1.

With the hot weather and busy tubes, Boris Bikes offer the perfect alternative method to get around, they’re even a favourite amongst celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kendall Jenner and even the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge 2,3.

If you’re thinking of buying a property in London, there’s even talk that homes near docking stations are seeing a boost in house prices4
