How much?
Price of a bike

Cycle tracks will abound in Utopia’ said H.G. Wells once, and by the sight of the big blue Barclays’ beasts booming it around the city you’d be forgiven for thinking we’re almost there. London is all a-bike, its new mantra two tyres good, four (or more) bad. So it’s time to get on yer bikes and ride, and if you’re in the market for new wheels (and maybe a machine that is slightly sleeker than the blue behemoths) you should make for Re-cycling. Not only are all of their wares second hand and, therefore, greener – to say nothing of cheaper – than yer average, they also operate a ’no lemons’ policy. Friendly staff and an uber ethical ethos mean positivity is in pole position. Indeed, it’s like your man H.G. said, ‘every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race…’ / Vyvian Raoul
