The answer as to the “why” is that my car would be quite a bit further east than the furtherest-east docking station and so it’s the best solution I can see to taking advantage of the scheme. (Obviously in an ideal world, there’d be docking stations even further!)
My car’s back seats fold down so I’m sure there’d be room enough – although it remains to be seen if the bikes themselves are too heavy. (Amazingly I’ve yet to ride one – though I’ve applied for my key!)
The other reason “why” is because the main reason I don’t cycle as it is, is because I can’t stand the maintenance/hassle of owning a bike. The beauty of this scheme is that that’s all taken care of by someone else.
It slightly disturbs me that my route would involve my cycling over that junction where some cyclist was killed yesterday but hopefully that’s just a one off bit of really bad luck and I really do want to take advantage of the scheme since it seems like such a good idea.
