London Bikes



London's new cycle rental scheme started last week. Rather unfortunately dubbed the 'Boris Bikes' after the capital's Mayor Boris Johnson, there are 5,000 cycles available at 300 docking stations in central zone 1. Apparently on Day 1 (30th July) 6,000 journeys were made.

They seem to be attracting quite a lot of attention even when not being used - as I was photographing these a guy in a car stopped and asked me if I knew how the scheme worked... I haven't had the guts to give one a whirl yet, but watch this space!
