What a fantastic idea!

Spotted this on my way into Warrington Bank Quay station this evening (I live the high life, right?): A dock where you can rent a Brompton

It says “£2.50 a day”, which sounds like an absolute bargain to me! Not sure how popular it is or how widely used in the local area – but how cool, right?

Anything that increases access to these nifty little bikes is alright in my book. Especially if you haven’t got hundreds of pounds to buy one.

  1. I’ve a friend who uses that when in Warrington. (Trains from Yorkshire arrive at Warrington Central but it operates there too). You have to be a member of the scheme first which costs £20. You then pay £2.50 per day to hire a bike. If you don’t go to sunny Warrington often, you can just pay £1 membership and £5 to hire your bike.

    I wish more councils operated such schemes as taking your own bike by UK train can be a pain.



    1. Bike hire schemes are a great idea! They need to be publicised and made as accessible as possible. I’ve never brought my Brompton anywhere on the train, as I usually have too much luggage to travel by bike in the first place.
