Boris bikes for Leicester?

One of Boris Johnson's achievements as mayor has been to make a bicycle hire scheme - long a radical dream - work in London, even if those in the know will tell you this scheme was developed under Ken Livingstone.

Now Leicester's mayor is consulting over bringing the idea to the city.

The Leicester Mercury quotes deputy mayor Rory Palmer:
"We want as many people has possible to give their views on the scheme, to help us decide whether it would be suitable for Leicester. 
"Encouraging cycling in Leicester is a major part of our transport policy. 
"The reduction in car journeys will also help improve air quality and people's health."
The consultation closes on 6 June. You can respond via the City Council website.
