I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like...

I'm sure you've all seen this photo of Boris and a few chums cycling through Westfield yesterday, one such chum was apparently slightly unsteady on her two wheeled friend. The photo op was to mark the first year anniversary of the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme that I know many of us have used. Previously on this blog and on twitter I have bemoaned the fact that the nearest station to the Bush is near Olympia station or up Notting Hill and so took it upon myself to give one Boris Bike a tour of the Bush myself earlier this year.

But my moans and our prayers have been answered! Thanks to a healthy cash injection from Barclays and I believe, Westfield, it was reported yesterday that Boris Bikes will land in W12 early next year. Get ready to get on your bike, Shepherd's Bush!


  1. I want to know when they'll arrive in NW! Our nearest one is in St John's Wood. xx

  2. That's surprised they haven't expanded out further into the NWs too. I hope they will! x
