If Boris will not bring his bikes to our Bush, the Bird will cycle one there instead.
I cannot tell you how much of a pleasure it was having my picture taken with a Barclays Cycle Hire scheme bike outside one of my most favourite Shepherd's Bush buildings. (I even don't mind the fact I look pregnant and that I am mastering an unsure windswept expression.)
Admittedly, I then had to humbly cycle back out of the Bush to deposit the bicycle at my nearest station near Olympia tube station before grudgingly walking back home to my nest in the Bush. Nonetheless it was a joyous moment and I really do hope one day the scheme will introduce docking stations in Shepherd's Bush.
