Barclays bikes coming to the Isle of Dogs
The Barclays bicycle hire scheme (popularly known as Boris Bikes after the Mayor of London) was to be extended to the borough of Newham, including the Isle of Dogs, from "Spring 2012". This docking station outstide Canary Wharf tube station had been completed by mid-February.

One of the security men appeared to be eyeing me suspiciously but this is as public a place as you can get, with many tourists photographing the surrounding buildings.
