Just a few photos of the huge new Cycle Hire stands right outside Canary Wharf’s Jubilee Line station. Considering how many people use the area as a meeting place and sit on the high wall beside the bike stand, I am actually quite surprised it ended up here.

I would have expected them to put it around the north side of the station where there is wide and little used pathway, or on Bank Street.

The bikes are due to arrive next month and personally I am looking forward to replacing my regular walk around the Isle of Dogs with cycle rides – as I can cycle to the shops instead of walking, and use the time saved to cycle back the long way so doubling my mileage.

They are still suggesting you can walk across the river though. Sigh.

      Same as the legible london signs you see dotted around – it is the direction you are facing that it top.

  3. To be fair, the statement about the river almost came true this past week!
