Boris bikes

They are found all over London in their thousands, and you can hire them to travel just a matter of metres – or from one side of the city to the other.

Boris bikes – named after London mayor Boris Johnson who introduced the scheme – are parked in hundreds of docking stations across the city, and are distinctive with their blue livery and chunky frames.

Tourists and locals alike seem to love them, although I’ve yet to hop onto one, fearing the traffic of this great city.

This perfectly neat and unhired line of bikes was found in the financial heart of London on a quiet Sunday afternoon, nestling just beneath the Gherkin, one of the city’s famous skyscrapers.

It was an opportunity to take out the camera for some perfectly obvious and slightly more artful shots.

Happy biking!
