Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
A large pod of 'Mobikes' has been spotted occupying a corner of Elthorne Park on Hornsey Rise (near where the Favourite used to be). Dangerously close to N8.
This is another bike hire thing, with smart bikes that know where they are and connect via an app to users. A Chinese company, they expanded to Islington borough the other day. Now what happens if you grab one, cycle into Haringey, and leave it in Crouch End, I dunno. Do they self destruct?
Or perhaps they'll just find their way to the nearest canal (as Manchester reported).
And here's a nice pic of the Chinese operation.
My favourite suggestion from the CENF Christmas Fair is a drag lift/tow rope to get cyclists out of Crouch End.
