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.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    And why is south at the top?

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

    They were installing them when I arrived about half 9, by half one they were all in place. Surprisingly rapid installation!

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