Hello Dan, I understand your problem, and realise both days were extremely busy for Boris bike commuters.

My opinion is that it is difficult for the Boris bike distribution teams to respond to situations like a strike. They are limited in the number of staff and vans they have. It would be ideal to do as you suggest, but if they regularly employed enough staff to cover a tube strike day, those same people would presumably be underemployed on a normal day when less bikes are in use, not to mention a two month wash-out period like we’re in at present which no doubt sends your average Boris biker rushing for the bus or tube.
