Spinning Class Flash Mob Hits London & the Boris Bikes Scheme
London has an inner city cycle program that is known as the Boris Bikes Scheme, which is cunningly named after the current London Mayor, Mr Boris Johnson. The scheme is run by Transport for London and lets London residents hire a bike for the day – they pick up a bike from one point, and can leave it at another.
Recently an enterprising group of people decided to hijack some of the bikes chained up around the city by placing them on small wheels – the result was a spinning class flashmob which has been captured for posterity and is available on Youtube. You can see them all in action below:
Fantastic idea, and we wonder if it is too late to get this into the London 2012 Olympics as a new official sport. Britain might actually get a gold medal!
