Won't be able to do the full trip on a Boris Bike but you can certainly do part of it from Victoria to Tower Gateway (or any DLR Station up to Poplar with a Boris Bike then jump on the DLR to either Custom House or Prince Regents DLR station for the Excel.

Only issue you have taking a boris bike to the Excel is that it doesn't have any terminals to park the bike with. The times using a BB or PT I think will be very similar. DLR train from Bank/Tower Gateway will normally be 20ish minutes to the Excel.

The fun way:
District line to Westminster
Jubilee Line to North Greenwich
Cable car to Excel

The sensible way:
District Line to Tower Gateway
DLR to Excel

I know which I'd do...
Pannier, 120rpm.
