Mayoral hopeful Zac Goldsmith pledged to role out Boris Bikes across all of Greater London should he come into power.
In an announcement made on Tuesday (March 29), the Conservative candidate said Boris Bikes will be available to outer boroughs.
As part of his Action Plan for Greater London, should he succeed in becoming Mayor, Mr Goldsmith also guaranteed to make the bikes easier to hire, using Oyster and contactless payment cards.
In a visit to Brompton Bikes in west London's Greenford, Mr Goldsmith said the plan is to roll out the company's cycle hire scheme in areas such as Ealing Broadway, Richmond, Kingston and Walthamstow and help London commuters get out of their cars and onto bicycles.
The Brompton Bike Hire scheme provides commuters a folding bike for commuters and are delighted to be involved in a prospective partnerships.
Commenting on the unveiled plans, Harry Scrope, managing director of Brompton Bike Hire, said: “Brompton Bike Hire provides the popular folding bike at daily hire rates lower than any Oyster Card journey.
"Brompton support all initiatives that provide Londoners a greater opportunity to travel efficiently and cheaply whilst reducing congestion and improving air quality.”
Currently the Santander Cycle Hire Scheme is located in 12 boroughs and the Royal Parks, with Newham the only borough in the outer boroughs to have the scheme.
Ken Shuttleworth, Founder of Make Architects and Chair of the Future Spaces Foundation who have campaigned for cycle culture to improve in the city, said: "We welcome Mr Goldsmith’s pledges and want to encourage other mayoral candidates to prioritise cycling in their manifestos too.
“By moving bike-sharing schemes to less populated areas and making them easier to pay for, we believe we can start to change the culture of cycling in London to make it more inclusive."
We must continue investment in "making cycling safer and easier"
Mr Goldsmith also pledged to work with Transport for London to overhaul 33 identified junctions across London which are deemed the "most dangerous" and to prioritise road improvements.
The Mayoral hopeful added he will support boroughs who place speed limits on the roads and remove lorries off London's roads in a bid to keep cyclists safe across the capital.
He said: "Boris has put huge emphasis on cycling.
"As part of my Action Plan for Greater London I will build on that legacy, bringing Boris bikes to the outer boroughs, introducing easy oystercard payments to double the number of cyclists across Greater London, and continuing investment in making cycling safer and easier.
"I will make London the cleanest and greenest city on earth, and this is part of that commitment.”
“It’s clear we cannot afford the risk of a four year Sadiq Khan and Jeremy Corbyn experiment and the £1.9bn black hole in his spending plans that would make protecting cycling investment impossible.”
Exiting Mayor Boris Johnson spent £913 million on schemes to get the city cycling over the past decade.
Around 155,000 Londoners now ride to work, up from almost 80,000 in 2001.
