Bikes Galore, London is the new Amsterdam

Okay so maybe not quite Amsterdam yet but London really is becoming a city of cyclists, at least that’s the impression I’m getting.  Cyclists are all over the place, whether it be on the new fancy cycle super highways or on the towpaths of one of the newly revitalised canals around the Olympic Park.

Docking stations full of Boris bikes are all over the shop and two Wheelers tied up against lampposts or propped up against a wall are becoming common place, London is becoming a city full of bikes and cyclists.

Now for me, also an occasional user of the Boris bike, really what this translates into is the potential for countless photo opportunities.  So in homage to the London bike and those who use them, here is a gallery of bikes and how they add to the look of London.
