More bike hire comparisons

Well, no sooner had I posted about Oliver O'Brien's work comparing bike hire schemes around the world than JC Deceaux wrote and asked him to stop scraping the data he used for the schemes in Paris, Dublin and several other sites. Happily, he could still use the historic data to put together this fascinating presentation going into a lot more comparative detail:

The Dublin scheme comes out as amazingly (to me, anyway) popular, and interestingly it shows three rather than two peaks in usage, with a lot of people apparently using them around lunchtime as well as in morning and evening rush hours (see slide 23).
