BORIS Johnson, the London Mayor just as famous for his enthusiasm for cycling, wants to hear from Advertiser website readers about his 'Cycle Friday' bike rides.

He began a series of cycle convoys led by trained marshals last month which guide novice commuter cyclists into the centre of town each Friday.

These set off at six places in all directions at 8am and arte planned until October.

The East London convoy from Green Bridge in Mile End takes riders through Mile End Park, across the Regent's Canal through Stepney and Shadwell to Tower Hill, then on to St Paul's. Other convoys converge on the City from north, north-west, west, south-west and south-east London.

The Mayor will answer readers' questions on cycling sent by email to the Advertiser Newsdesk. He'll come back with a selection in next week's East London Advertiser.
