Early indications show that uptake of the Cycle Hire membership scheme has been strong - with TfL reportedly stating 600 applied in the first 40 minutes of launch.

There are, however, early reports that TfL could be experiencing trouble processing card payments with many forums reporting the transport department struggling to cope.

An annual subscription to the service will set customers back £45, plus a £3 key charge. Find out more on payment and hire periods here. A video explaining how to use the Cycle Hire docking stations can be seen here.
