Bike Porn Friday: Boris's Pulsating Two Wheeled Army


So we've blogged (is that really a verb?) about the London Cycle Hire Scheme before, and I've been making great use of the Boris Bikes, especially since my bike came back from bike hopspital with a note from the mechanic saying "rims badly worn, consider replacement wheels ASAP!"

Since the whole thing is controlled by computers and electronics, there's a huge amount of real-time data around about such things as availability of bikes at the docking stations.

And someone has now animated this data so you can watch between 8:30-9:30am as all the docking stations on the outside of the hire zone (the ones near rail stations) empty and the ones in the centre of town fill up. Here's the link, with a hat-tip to the Club Mascot's Mum's Brother for sending it to us.


Click on 'start animation' for the whole mesmerising marvel.

And for those of you frustrated that this week's BPF has too few pictures, here's Bernard Hinault:
