London prepares for 2012


Boris Bikes (rental bikes a la Paris, named after the current mayor) will probably be transport of choice till the Olympics, and possibly during the event, too - London is one big building site. The rent-a-bike idea is lovely, though still quite dangerous in a city where cars are not used to watch out for bikes and bike lanes a few and far between. 
There is some light at the horizon though: 4 Super Highways for bikes have recently opened, they are wider and painted a light blue. At least it is a start, and more are being planned.
