Cycle Hire stations coordinates updated

By the way, I have updated Bankers Bike coordinates table I wrote about in August. The Fusion table URL is the same, so is the KML link, and if you use Nokia Ovi maps you need to download the landmarks again and follow the same import instructions as before:
  • Download updated landmarks database for Nokia Ovi maps:

Stations added:
  • Grosvenor Square, Mayfair
  • Lower Marsh, Waterloo
  • Macclesfield Rd, St Lukes
  • Oval Way, Lambeth
  • Queen`s Gate, Kensington Gardens
  • Vauxhall Street, Lambeth

Stations removed:
  • Rathbone Street, Fitzrovia

Feel free to let me know of any problems.

Update: Data was updated

Update: for an up-to-date version please see the new dynamic solution.

How can it be?

Running home: 1h 36m
Cycling home: 1h 15m

No wonder, every cyclist I see moves faster than me, so I'm likely too shy on the road yet.
