Cycle Hire Scheme: What's In The Pack?

The envelope was a bit mangled in one corner... we'll put that down to the ministrations of Royal Mail, not TfL. The bottom right of the envelope has the Cycle Hire roundel, so you won't mistake it for your Barclaycard bill

A holder for up to four keys; yeah, took us a while to work it out too. Pretty pointless really -- the adhesive area isn't strong enough to hold the plastic key

The membership key; each one has a one-off charge of £3, and you can have up to four per account, though as one commenter notes, that does mean you'll have to pay £3 + the access charge (up to £45 for a year's worth) for each key

The fold-out guide includes a map of all the docking stations, something that's currently missing from the online version; however, with a substantial number of stations yet to get planning permission, the paper map is likely to have errors

After a short delay caused by the well-known payment problems that affected early registrants for Barclays Cycle Hire, a welcome pack and membership access key dropped through our letterbox on Tuesday. Click through the pics above to see what's included.

The bikes will be available from Friday, 30th July for those who register in advance; casual users will have to wait about another month before they can use them.

Eh? A holder? To hold them where exactly?! Pointless indeed...

Holder?! I think it's actually a sticker so you can label your keys.
