With the protests planned for central London today, you might be wise hopping on one of the Boris Bikes rather than a bus. A live interactive map could help you plan a trip around London. The TfL Cycle Hire Interactive Map plots information from Boris Bike stations on a map, letting you predict how full bike stands are likely to be at any given time of the day or night. It’s called “Can I Park It?”
Pull the slider to the time you will be travelling and scout out where and when to park.
It’s available to anyone with a PC, take a look here: TfL Cycle Hire Interactive Map
There are also iPhone and Android apps available with this data – the free one is the one you want.
