Cyclo cross pro In action. He "walked" this bike wheel after wheel onto the table in a most remarkable way.

The new entrance on the west side of Kings Cross station - in the Netherlands this area would be full of cycle parking, but in Britain it'll doubtless remain a barren plaza.

The last Boris bike being borrowed at 9.10am.

c9am, and no Boris bikes left opposite Kings Cross station (apart from the broken one, as indicated by the saddle turned around).
