    ^ indeed. Especially since it's daytime and there's no cars in the parking lot which means the cyclist is getting all the attention from the C squad.

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    ^^ That's a real shame as there are other parts of the world where those bicycles could make a real difference in people's lives.

    That is really sad they are just being destroyed.... Seems like they could easily be donated to communities around China that are poor and in need of some basic transportation.


    Here is a Sad bike I saw in Boston a few years ago when they had that super snowy winter.

    I found this sad specimen while out blackberry picking a while back:

    Sad Bikes-20170903_164612.jpg

    The poor thing has been strangled by its own innards tube, and to add insult to injury the wheels and derailleur have been stomped on.

    In the same area (and probably related) I found a kid's helmet stuffed in a hedge, and an empty wallet lying in the grass. They looked in decent condition so I put them on a gatepost for someone to scavenge, and indeed a couple of days later they were gone:
