Carbon Neutral Activities & Wellbeing in our Cities – London Cycling
London is a cycling city and, by 2041, it is expected that 70% of Londoners will live within 400 metres of a high-quality, safe cycle route. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, why not try hiring a Santander Cycle? They’re cheaper than motorised options and cycling is often just as expedient.
How to hire a Santander Cycle:
• Approach a docking station terminal
• Choose ‘Hire a cycle’ using the on-screen instructions
• Pay using your debit or credit card (other contactless devices will not work)
• Collect your printed receipt and type your release code into the docking point’s keypad, then pull the bike out once the green light has appeared
• Adjust the dimensions of the bike to your preferences
• Ride away!
• After riding, find an empty docking point and push the bike firmly into place, until a green light has appeared
• If the docking station is full, choose ‘No docking point free’ at the terminal and follow the on-screen directions for another 15-minutes. You can then look for an alternative.
Remember, you should aim to research safe bike paths before beginning your journey. You’ll find plenty of routes within the central London area that can help you avoid major areas of traffic.
Is it possible to practise sustainability in a city of over 9 million? According to the mayor’s ‘1.5-degree compatible plan’, the answer is ‘yes’ – with a heavy focus on eco building, public parks and zero-emissions mass public transportation.
London is going green, and guests of ByMansley, in both the Mayfair or Kensington properties, will find no shortage of natural spaces, sustainable travel options or eco-minded restaurants to help them reduce carbon footprint and stay healthy in the process.
