Thanks to the data released by Transport For London on the locations of the Cycle Scheme docks and bike movements, one clever developer has built this website that gives real-time updates on bicycle availability.

Looking for a bike? Red denotes bike stands that are full. Looking to drop a bike off? Dark blue/purple denotes bike stands that are empty, with the various shades in between indicating degrees of fullness.

The map’s fully scaleable, and there’s a newsfeed ticker, and the blue and red dots are curiously soothing. Mobile phone applications – the logical useful step – may be on their way.
