Cyclists took over Tate Modern's turbine hall on Thursday lunchtime to launch the gallery's membership of the Southwark-based Bikes for Business initiative.

Bikes for Business is managed by Southwark Council in partnership with the Southwark-based environmental business consultancy SEA/Renue. The scheme has just received £23,000 from Transport for London to extend it to more businesses in the borough.
Giles Semper of Better Bankside, which participates in the scheme, said: "It is great to know that the bike (unlike the bus) is just a few steps away and that it is fully serviced and therefore safe. No doubt the warmer weather will encourage even more of my colleagues to put it to use!"
The event was also attended by representatives of local groups including Southwark Cyclists.
