Only 7 minor injuries in over 1 million hire journeys

Transport for London announces that since the London bike hire scheme began, there have been over 1 million journeys on the bikes but only 7 minor injuries. 2 of the injured cyclists were given a head scan as a precaution, but no head injury was found.

94,500 people have registered to use the 'Boris Bikes' (named after London mayor Boris Johnson who has pushed implementation of the scheme) and there are 340 docking stations across central London.
