Boris Bike Mayor of London © Rob Greig / Time OutHappy Birthday Boris Bikes! With over 6 million journeys in the past year the scheme has been something of a success story for the Mayor of London. But how has the past year been for you? At times, has it felt as if you need a PhD in Bike Docking to get the sodding things to unlock, re-dock or even take your money? This week we were informed of problems in Shoreditch and Old Street when users were unable to unlock bikes – Transport for London has assured us it was a temporary glitch and the problem is now solved. Other problems we’ve heard of include not being able to find an available bike, and not finding room to dock it.

How do you rate the scheme and how can it be improved? Comment below and let us know.
