Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 9 July 2013.

Yes, the new draft contract (and indeed the existing contract) allows for the carriage of non-folding bicycles in the event that current restrictions are lifted.

A six month trial allowing bikes on the DLR under certain conditions started on 1 July.
