Cycle hiring around Watford is expanding after three neighbouring councils in Hertfordshire signed up for the same cycle hire scheme.

The latest developments in Beryl’s regional expansion comes as a result of Watford Borough Council’s decision to extend its contract with the company until 2026, Three Rivers District Council introducing Beryl Bikes’ services into Croxley, and Hertsmere Borough Council extending the service into Bushey.

This collaboration between the three neighbouring councils means that Beryl will now be available in more places, and uers will be able to ride the bikes across these areas without any hassle, creating a smooth and straightforward experience for users moving between Croxley, Bushey, and Watford.

Upcoming plans for Beryl include five new docking stations and 15 e-bikes in Bushey for Hertsmere, funded through section 106 development contributions. Three Rivers will also finance the same amount for a two-year e-bike pilot in Croxley via their capital budget.

Councillor Stephen Giles-Medhurst, Deputy Council Leader of Three Rivers District Council, said: “This is a two-year pilot with five base stations in Croxley Green, and so the council will monitor how successful this scheme is until 2026. I hope that this can be rolled out across the district, so all our residents outside Croxley Green can have easy access to a Beryl Bike and get all the benefits of cycling.”

These additional e-bikes will integrate into the existing fleet, offering flexibility between regular and electric bikes.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
