    Abandoned bike on Roxborough Loop

    I rode the loop last week and saw this bike on the side of the trail near the big stream crossing. Figured some one was probably taking a nature or something. But then me and a buddy saw it again today in the same spot. (Kinda Creepy) Looked in the seat bag for Identification and found a disposable camera with half of the pictures spent, a pocket knife, and a multi tool. Left the knife and tools there but turned the camera in at the rangers house. Anyone else see this bike or know the situation with it.

    I saw it last week too - Friday if i remember correctly. I thought the same thing about someone, uhhh, taking a nature break.

    Maybe it's someone's ditched DUI bike - I hate to think that something bad happened.

    I wonder what is on that camera? Maybe some Blair witch stuff.

    I really wanted to know what was on the Camera too. Creepy! The guy that lives at the house at the top of the road said he would tell a ranger when he sees one next. He didn't seem very concerned at all. Creepy though!

    Maybe it was stolen and someone left it there?? Also hope that if there is the rider nothing bad happened to them.
    Kinda weird??

    We saw it there on Sunday and joked about it. A friend of ours lost his RD and we thought we should backtrack to swap bikes. Seems to be a strange place to abandon something.

    Take bike. Tune bike up nicely. Give bike to someone who needs bike.

    Just a thought.

    EDIT- I guess it has only been 5 days....

    It's been there since at least 4/23/06. That's the first day that I saw it.

    There is some evidence of people camping (squatting) back there, an old campsite is not
    too far down the hill on the CT from Lenny's.
    Maybe it was someones commuter?
    Any mechanicals, flat tire, broken chain?
