Health benefits of Boris bikes

I thought it worth posting a link to the full BMJ article on Boris biking.

The article concludes that the health benefits from cycle hire outweigh the negative effects of pollution and potential injury, though these positive effects are more pronounced in men then women, particularly among older men.

  1. I'm sure the health benefits outweigh the negative effects of pollution etc....the only problem is we don't seem to be getting the Boris Bikes in Clapham! The docking station pits/holes or whatever you want to call them were put in 3 or 4 months ago at least and since we have not seen a thing! Actually thats not true a couple of weeks ago I was pleased to see all the docking stations erected in Eckstein Road, near CJ....only to see them all disappear the following day! Is this a waste of money? Are we getting these bikes or not? Come on Boris.

  2. Eckstein Road has been approved, so no idea what's going on there. Where else have you seen the foundations being put in? I know that construction is still in progress - I saw a new site on Storey's Gate earlier in the week which is not yet operating.
