  • They are affectionately known as Boris Bikes after the Mayor who launched the scheme and I'm fascinated by them.

    I always want to know about the people who ride them. Who are they? Where are they coming from. Where are they going to? Why bike and not bus, or tube or walk? Do they know how much of an iconic part of the city they become as they cycle a Boris up the street?
