London mayor to give William and Kate a tandem bike
Mayor of London Boris Johnson cycles his bike over Westminster Bridge in central London on July 30, 2010. London launched a major cycle hire scheme Friday which aims to make transport in the city greener ahead of the 2012 Olympics, following in the tracks of cities like Paris and Shanghai. Johnson, a keen cyclist, said the scheme was a 'new dawn' for pedal power in London, adding he hoped the bikes would become as common a sight on its streets as black cabs and red doubledecker buses.
