Yikes Readers, I wasn’t First!

Much in evidence all around central London of late have been the blue bicycles bearing the wholly coincidental sponsorship of Barclays Bank, and already nicknamed Boris Bikes. But the idea is not a new one, and neither do other participating cities see the need for such overt sponsorship.

Bikes - hundreds of them!

In Barcelona, the scheme is called Bicing (website HERE, in Català). The bike station in the photo is at the Arc de Triomf, just to the east of the old town. The only organisation shown on the red and white cycles is the Ajuntament de Barcelona.

That’s the local authority.
