Boris Bikes are set to break their own record, set during the Olympics in July 2012, for the most hires in a month with more than 1.17 million hires recorded this July.

Since the scheme's  launch on 30th July 2010 more than 32 million journeys have been made on the bikes, and to celebrate the fourth anniversary the bikes, which now cover 100km2 of London, will be free to use on 16th and 17th August.
