Get on your bike in Warrington for £1

Warrington Guardian: Get on your bike for £1 Get on your bike for £1

GET on a Brompton bike for £1 when you sign up to the scheme.

The scheme allows you to borrow a bike from three venues in the town for £2.50 for 24 hours with a frequent membership or at £5 a day with a leisure membership.

But there is a special offer running at the moment to sign up to the lesiure scheme for £1 and get two days free hire.

This week there are a series of demonstrations on railway platforms at Warrington Central and Bank Quay stations.


There are three ‘Docks’ in Warrington holding 60 of the folding bikes outside Warrington Central, Warrington Bank Quay and Birchwood railway stations.

Once hired bikes can be used for commuting around Warrington or can be folded up and taken with you for your ongoing journey on the bus, taxi or train.  They can be returned to any of the Brompton docks in Warrington or at any of the docks in any of the 17 Brompton Dock locations around the UK.

The hire scheme forms part of the council’s Warrington Sustainable Travel Triangle Project, which is funded by the government’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund and aims to provide Warrington with sustainable and low carbon travel choices.

Clr Linda Dirir, executive member for highways transportation and climate change, said: "The Brompton Dock Bicycle Hire scheme is a brilliant and convenient idea. It is inexpensive, handy for commuting and great on those lovely summer days when you simply fancy a bike ride in the sunshine."

What a total waste of money. I own a Brompton and find it quite useful for commuting. However what happens if all the bikes from the Warrington docks are dropped off at docks out of town? Who is responsible for the up keep especially for damaged bikes that may come from out of town docks?

Don't you think with a scheme of this size there will be a maintenance contract? Also the article implies the scheme is nationwide so don't you think there will be a plan to return the bikes at some point? I think you should find out and get your facts straight before rubbishing a new initiative like this.

So why brand the scheme as a total waste of money before you know anything about it? I won't sink to your name-calling level as I dont know you, but I suggest you go to the website to find out more before slating anyghing.
