Frequent Membership

£20 annual membership fee

£2.50 daily hire charge

Great if you need a bike more regularly to travel to and from work or to just to get around. You only need to hire eight times a year to make it worth becoming a frequent member. 

Leisure Membership

£1 annual membership fee

£5 daily hire charge

Perfect if you just need a bike for the weekend or to take out with friends. Try a Brompton before you buy one or use Brompton Dock while your bike is being serviced or repaired. 

Was just looking at bike hire in London / Brighton, and come across this on Google, have never heard of them before, but seems like a good deal to me. They don't have many "dock" shops, but looks like it's growing, nice idea.

I have a Brompton myself, great little bikes, pricy though

There are two membership plans...

(Dunno Why, but Copy and paste always messes up on my note 2, hence the fees are above)

Anyhow interesting, good value it seems.

Anyone used them ?

Their website has a list of docks, for example my nearest in London is Ealing then Peckham, so quite spread out but they are opening a few more (

Seems they have places mainly in Southern England, up the Midlands, as far as Warrington

when you think a Brompton is about £600 minimum to buy these days, and how much it costs to service, etc, I think this is potentially very good indeed.

Cool this will work out cheaper than London Cycle Hire "Boris Bikes" for long journeys when the family visit.

Also gets you access to the car hire services for £1 instead of £25:

Dont understand the appeal of this, you could get a couple of busses for £2.50ish? Also you don't have to ride a brompton, other better value folding bikes exist.

Still expensive, can hire a toyota yaris from derby for £26 a day inc insurance and theyll drop it off and pick it up, or a van for £45.

**** taking up commuter space on the trains - I'd charge them for their damn Brompton, say £25 - ha, ha, ha

Yes and you could also walk for free but thats not the point

Really? Unless you are looking to spend ££££'s on an Airnimail or similar you wont find a better bike than a Brompton. Dahon and the others are cheaper but are no where near the same quality and don't fold up as neatly.

£600, you are having a laugh. A standard 3 speed Brompton is £890 these days, and stick all the options on, and you can exceed £2,000.

However I would guess the vast majority are bought on the Cycle to Work scheme, so the taxpayer is footing over half the cost.

I was guessing there... You could well be correct.

I bought my Brompton for £550 some nine years ago or so. I hadn't used it much the last few years, but recently got it serviced for this summer, which cost me £70... I did have a look at the prices in Evans Cycles, and saw the cheapest was about £890... Blimey, didn't realise the price had gone up so much

Don't be so bitter and uninformed. The saving going through cycle to work these days is probably only 10% for basic rate tax payers.

Bitter. Nope, I love my Brompton.

Uninformed. Nope, you won't see many basic rate taxpayers on a Brompton, and a higher rate taxpayer will save around 40-45% (aka half).

What I find amusing is the taxpayer subsidising expensive bikes for well paid people.

Even a the higher rate of 40%, that's still not "over half the cost" ;)
