Boris bikes

I didn't vote for Boris and I never will but I was all excited about his cycle hire scheme. And today I actually used one of them. And it was great. My morning journey threatened to turn into a bit of a farce when I couldn't find a docking space. I had to go to three ranks before I did and ended up walking slightly further back to my office than makes sense of hiring a cycle in the first place. Still, it all took under 30 minutes so was free anyway. Looking up my homeward journey on my activity log reveals that the usual twenty minute slog has been transformed into a mere seven minute breeze on the bike. What will I do with all the extra time?
