Map of "Boris" bike locations in Tower Hamlets

Today the Friends of Mile End Park, FOMEP to its friends, launches this our new website. Whilst Mile End Park has a facebook page already which is regularly updated, we feel it is important for the Friends to have our own independent site representing the views of park users. We have uploaded lots of photos from last year’s Park Life Fun Day – dogs and all – and look forward to being able to speedily upload those from the forthcoming 2012 Fun Day.

It’s good to see the Boris Bikes docking stations up and running (around 2,300 bikes in our borough) and I for one look forward to trying them out. There’s a great little site that even shows which docking stations are busy to lessen the chances of me having to walk 300 yards only to find no bikes for hire.
