The new red Santerbikes hit the London streets!

He has done it again!  Another £51 million for Londoners in the coffers.   The new sponsor for the bike hire scheme is Santander,  and anyone who calls the bright red bikes Boris bikes in the future is heading for the Tower of London and the rack!borissanterbikeAction man Boris was putting the Santerbike through its paces for the benefit of the press today.  I calculate Boris Johnson and his aides have raised a cool £151 million minimum in sponsorship for this city.  In eight years as Mayor, Ken Livingstone went on trade missions aplenty, (jollies) and never raised a penny piece!

Well done Boris, once again you have done London proud.

  1. Borisis a genius at raising funding. A million more than Barclays has been raised from Santander. £51 million in the kitty! Well done Boris.

  2. Let’s just hope the public call them Santerbikes not Boris bikes or another sponsor will bail. They do look nice though.
