Bikes that meet their Waterloo...

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Aperitif, 11 Jun 2008.

  1. I had to use the train today and saw some bikes at Waterloo - they are everywhere!

    I sometimes wonder why 'owners' just leave a bike somewhere and seemingly forget about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would not chain anything worth more than £100 to any railings so some git can go and destroy it in a fit of mindless vandalism :wacko:

    Is this the start of a new book perhaps?
    Graveyard pics of bikes outside stations; 'Bikes that meet their Clapham Junction' or perhaps better, 'Bikes that meet their Mile End'?

    :wacko:

    Seconded. I wouldn't leave my bike unattended anywhere for any length of time.

    Really? I leave my bike for ages. No problem about it.

    At York station there are dozens of abandoned bicycles. I can only imagine that people cycle to the station, get on a train and never come back again - or perhaps get kidnapped by aliens.

    A lot of the bikes are in a similar conditions to the ones shown in Apertif's photos, but oddly the station staff say they have no powers to remove them.

    So, employ Jamie Oliver, the wizard. He has powers...:smile:

    Actually, I've been thinking of employing an angle grinder to cut all the locks.

    The same applied to Stockholm! There were dozens of bikes abandoned all over the city; if I had had the space I would have 'collected' them at night and gone about doing them up and selling them.

    But I didn't have the space! :smile: :smile:
    But it's a plan I still have, one day, when I'm older and dodderier.
