Mapped: Boris Bikes journeys in lights

Posted at 8:00 am, October 5, 2012 in Technology, Transport

No. What you just watched wasn’t the results of Michael Hodges MRI after taking ecstasy but the first 5 million Boris bike journeys. Visualisation specialist Jo Wood from City University London has created this rather hypnotic but slightly creepy animation. If you were a bit lost (we were too the first time we watched it), less used journeys start to fade after 15 seconds that eventually reveal three major hubs of activity within the city. So if you’re an avid Boris bike user, just know that Big Brother is watching… sort of. Carly-Ann Clements
