Touring Britain’s Capital on Tokyobike

People may tell you that biking around London is a crazy idea. In fact, it’s very doable — even enjoyable. In the summer of 2010, under the mayoral office of Boris Johnson, London was outfitted with a public bicycle-share program, more fondly known as Boris Bikes. While it’s a convenient way for both travellers and locals to weave around the city on short journeys, there is an alternative to the heavy Dutch-style bikes. A sleeker bike-hire option comes from independent bicycle company, Tokyobike.
