Barclays Cycle Hire animation

February 7, 2011

The Barclays Cycle Hire scheme in London allows you to take a cycle from a docking station, ride it where you like and then return it for the next person to use.

Here’s a lovely animation that uses data supplied by Transport for London to show the flow of these hire bikes during the 4th October Tube strike in 2010.

This is BIG Green Commuter Challenge Week, when many commuters will hopefully be exploring more sustainable ways of getting to work. Sunday 30th May also happens to be a day to celebrate bike culture during the Love Your Bike Portsmouth event, which is sponsored by The University of Portsmouth Creative Campus Initiative and Portsmouth City Council’s Health Town’s Initiative.

TOTD was particularly intrigued by the Gocycle, which forms part of a display in a shop window in Southsea. There’s a lovely animation of how it works on the Gocycle site.
