|Although I don't plan to add them to the database, the vehicles operated in support of the TfL/Barclays Cycle Hire scheme may be of interest to some people. All have fleetnumbers in the same position as central fleet SVs, while the Nissan and Alke vehicles have a white and two-tone blue livery somewhat similar to LUL's. I will list those that I have noted below. If you have any additions, please post as a reply and I will update the list.
Alke ATX electric flatbed mini-truck
Ford Focus (hatchback unless noted)
F04 MF59AEW black
F05 MV59MXZ black
F08 MV59MUW silver
F09 LG08NXS silver estate
F10 MV59NDK black
Ford Mondeo saloon (silver with blue skirt)
Nissan NV200 van
Ford Transit 'standard' vans
Ford Transit Box Vans
Fiat Ducato Box Vans
The bicycles themselves have 5 digit 'fleetnumbers'

|I was considering the possibility of adding the Cycle Hire support vehicles to the database, thus enabling sightings etc. Does anyone have any views on this? In the meantime, I have updated the list here.
All of the original vehicles have been replaced. Information has been added about A07, M02, M04 and N02. The identities of A04, F01-F03, F06 and F07 are not known. The current fleet appears to be a small number of normal Ford Transit vans (for machine maintenance?) and a larger batch of specialised Ford Transit box vans for cycle movement. Sadly they do not carry fleetnumbers. The latest addition is a Fiat Ducato box van.
