We stopped by the new tokyobike shop near Old Street today. Even a confirmed pedestrian will admire the pared-down appeal of these magnificent bicycles, available in an array of colours which pop vibrantly against the shop's gleaming white wall backdrop.
Alongside the bicycles is a range of accessories, tailored to the cyclist but not exclusively so. Magazines, brushes, bags and, yes, maps are all available for those who navigate the city not on two wheels but with the humble Oyster.
