    I keep seeing bikes chained to railings or rotting away in the name of advertising restaurants or painter decorators.

    I'm going to collect some photos of them as I go.

    Here is one I see quite often, and it's not a good example - the hoarding has been kicked out of the frame. It was advertising the Vietnamese restaurant "The Hanoi Bike Shop" IMG_20171023_091114.jpg

    Not all of them are rotting away though. Two cheese-related examples, one from Cambridge, with admirers, and a similar one from Holland with actual cheese:

    Curmudgeonly harrumph!

    Next time I'm in Leeds city centre, I shall photograph the advertising bikes - every single damned one of them chained and locked to a cycle-stand, supposedly for people-on-bikes to lock their bikes to. :cursing:

    I wonder if the one in West Bridgford Nottingham has been spotted.
    It will be dark when I get there tomorrow evening but I'll try to get a pic if not.

    I don't think that one is ever locked.

    This is a sad looking Falcon mixte.
    Makes me want to start the RSPB(ikes) and "rescue" it.

    For only £5 a month, you could give a bike like this the gift of a chain.

    How would you go about that, forensically speaking? Try and age the youngest consumable, the estimate the usage per year?

    Google Street view first spotted it in October 2015 :smile:
