Free bike hire T-shirt for LARGE women only

I was at a BBQ over the weekend and a friend said his wife had been sent a free Bike Hire T-shirt.

They were given out to the first 1,000 people that signed up to the bike hire scheme as members.

The problem was she'd been sent a large size and it was too big for her. Now she took this extremely well but he says she returned the T-shirt to Transport for London.

Surely, I thought they haven't sent large sizes to the whole of the female population of London?

Oh yes they have.

My Transport for London contact (who probably thinks I'm trivialising things) said:

"Yes, all women got sent large. The large T-shirt fits a size ten perfectly."

Also on Saturday I got a courtesy call from Serco checking that everything was going OK with my cycling experience. Anyone else been contacted?

On another note, thanks to Lou Lou who got in contact about bank accounts and Boris bikes.

It seems you can't get two bike accounts on the same joint account.

So it means Lou Lou can't become a member or a casual user in September as her husband already has a membership account.

More on this when Transport for London get back to me.
