Boris No Longer Mayor, According To Lonely Planet

Have Apple been in the development lab again, coming up with a time travel device (which we're currently calling the iDeLorean) and lending it to Lonely Planet? Today's iTunes 12 Days of Christmas app giveaway is LP's Best in Travel 2012 guide.

Londoners have been quick to embrace Boris Bikes. Informally named after the former mayor who launched the scheme, Boris Johnson, these three-geared, blue-and-grey bad boys have quickly become a familiar sight.
