Yes folks - estate agents are reporting increasing numbers of questions about the nearest docking station to a property, and heightened interest in properties within the cycle hire area, according to the Standard.
Looks like the cycle-hire-related environmental blight predicted by certain Mayfair residents in my previous post may be unfounded. Meanwhile, the blue bikes are becoming a more and more common sight around the West End and other outer-London boroughs are expressing interest in extending the scheme. If people start associating cycling with good things like rising house prices, maybe the political tide is changing in favour of decent cycling infrastructure - it's just a shame, in the words of Liam Byrne, that there's no money left.
Note - I didn't even mention the B word.
