'Paris vs. London' pt. 3: The Bikes

Inspired by the blog (and the book) ‘Paris versus New York, a tally of two cities' I decided to do a set of illustrations on Paris vs. London. Similarities, clichés, differences, etc. As promised, here is part 3:

Maybe you've seen them already when visiting Paris or London: the Velib' or the Barclay Bike. They're very useful as you hire them at one docking station and return them to any other docking station in the city. In London, the Barclay Bike is better known as 'Boris Bike', after the mayor Boris Johnson who was very supportive about the bikes when they were installed (but he has probably never driven one). By the way, in Brussels and Antwerp there's a similar system.
