Thats 20 per metre.

You won't be able to cycle anywhere because all those bike will be getting
in the way.
This is definately a grab for votes in the next London election,
which can only be a good thing if Ken is trying to fight Boris over cycling.
Although I would prefer realistic ideas, rather than attention grabbing
headlines about silly ideas.

I see that Mr Livingstone's people know how to spell programme
correctly.

There is a lack of detail to the plans. Those who are in the area
may like to lobby to ensure this is not the anti-cyclist measure
that some fear.

No, its a badly constructed sentence :)

I think they mean: 6000 bikes for hire. Hire stations will be spaced at 300m
intervals.
