Some of you may have noticed Boris Bike (aka Barclay’s bikes) docking stations cropping up along the Wandsworth Road and Clapham Junction parts of the Clapham area. So far there are no signs actually within Clapham town or the High Street, however.
This is part of the South West expansion, which you can read about on the TFL website. The expansion (see map below) mostly covers Hammersmith, Fulham and Wandsworth, but scrapes into the Clapham area. We’re unclear yet whether the bikes will come into Clapham town and around the common, or if Wandsworth Road is the limit.
It seems a shame that TFL / Barclays/ Boris etc haven’t decided to urgently rush the bike scheme along the extremely heavily overcrowded Northern Line to relieve the pressure. Fingers crossed.
We’ll let you know more as we know it. Bike on Clappers!
