Abandoned part 6

Abandoned part 6

They came through ‘ere. The horde. The vultures.

Descending.

Kicking.

Stealing. 

That’s both wheels gone. 

Gone forever.

Gone for good. 

What’s a bike without wheels? An assortment of parts that’s what. 

If I’m not unshackled soon. There’ll be nothing left.

Nothing.

Nothing at all. 

Parked in a relatively busy spot near the tube station at Russell Square in London, this bike is probably 24 hours from being stripped bare. A great shame – the ‘D’ lock could have also secured the rear wheel as a minimum.

If you come back to your bike to find it decimated by detritivores, please think about passing any unwanted bits to local social enterprises such as The Cardiff Cycle workshopThe Bristol Bike Project or ReCycling (London). This is part of an ongoing series to highlight cycle security, abandoned and vandalised bikes.
