Abandoned Part 10

Abandoned part 10

What do you mean? Of course they’ll be back!

Sometimes…you know….people get delayed. 


They said we’d be safe here, with all those ladies watching us from the windows.

They’ll be back….

….they will…..

We know it. 

These bikes have been locked to the Sheffield stands in Park Place (Cardiff) for several weeks now and their condition is deteriorating. Sometimes they’re standing up (no doubt due to friendly fellow cyclists) , other times they’re lying down. But they’re definitely not moving. I’m not sure if they arrived as a pair or not, but what’s faintly worrying is that one bike is a ladies model and the other is a gents. I hope their owners are Ok.

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.
