Barclays Bikes – aka Boris Bikes – are the basic three gear bikes you can borrow for a couple of quid in London.
They’re not awful, but they’re not made for a long-haul cycle either, so when these guys decided to ride them all the way to Paris, they knew they were in for a bit of a challenge.
The ‘Tour de Cycle Hire’, as it was named, saw Graham McLoughlin, James Greig and James Holt take on the gruelling 300km trip for a bit of a laugh, and you’ve got to hand it to them for making it all the way. It must’ve been pretty freakin’ boring at times.
The highlights are decisively more interesting, of course, so have a watch and let us know what you think!
