There’s a “Black Friday” offer on the cost of an annual subscription to the cycle hire scheme, offering a 25% discount.

The annual membership fee is usually £90, but with the discount, it works out at £67.50, or the equivalent of 18p per day to use the cycle hire bikes.

The annual subscription comes with a key (if you don’t already have one) that unlocks the bikes, and then you can cycle for free for up to 30 minutes before needing to redock the bike. You can do as many trips as you like in a day, so long as each trip is under 30 minutes.

To claim the discount, enter the code ‘CYCLEBF21’ online or via the Santander Cycles app.

The ‘CYCLEBF21’ code is valid between Friday 26th November to Monday 29th November. This is a limited offer and users must redeem the code by 23:59 on Monday 29th November.

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.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Hurrah, had this last year was hoping for a repeat.

    My annual usage is somewhere between the discounted and full price, if there wasn’t an offer I would be £2 PAYG per day on my keyfob

      One additional point that I have had confirmed by Santander helpdesk.

      If you already have a timed access pass active on your key, and you buy a new one through this offer, then the new one is “queued up” and will start when your current one ends. I expect you can use the discount code only once.

      So if you think you will use a pass for a significant future period, then buy this offer even if you have just recently renewed. And repeat if a similar offer occurs in the future.
