One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Boris Bikes Launching In Northampton
Northampton's own version of London's Boris Bikes has officially been launched this morning.
It means the public can now hire 50 bikes which can be picked up and dropped off at ten docking points across the town.
The project, which has cost £150,000, is hoped to help the environment and traffic in the town.
Northampton Borough Council Leader David Macintosh told Heart "To start with it's really testing the water to see how popular these could be, but I think as the university relocates and students move into the town centre and people get to know more about these, it's something I hope will take off and something we can develop and expand in the future."
See Heart's Warren Lee take a spin on one of the new Cycle Connect bikes:
