    My guess would be, people who park their bike there often and donít want to carry the awkward lock around?

    A small fishing harbor in Northumberland. At first glance, they don't look too bad but if you look at the stanchions of the bike on the ground you'll see that all of the working parts of the bikes are rusted solid. These bikes will never work again.

    On the side of a converted barn in Seahouses, Northumberland. Just...why?

    Bike down! At least the owner cared enough to lock up his bike!

    Those bikes are locked by flimsy locks. If he could cut with simple wire cutter, these owners are careless.

    in Slovenia yes, we were just in Ljubljana for yesterday, but we have alrady changed our plans and will spend another day there later this week.
    Great little city, and not flooded by tourists (although the locals may disagree)

    Lot's of sad bikes in Ljubljana

    Here's a couple more from yesterday in Toronto.


    Sad Bikes-37907761_2172228209688285_1174297127342309376_n.jpg



    The bike in the background, behind the street toilet ...was left unattended and unlocked. Incredible that it hadn't been stolen in the 2 minutes we spent in this area

    Topological observation: There's no hole in the frame through which you could secure it. Take the rear wheel off (and maybe the crank) and it would slip its lock...or take the seat post and fork off.

    It looks rather proud, not sad, IMO.
    Do the math.

    Saw this in Sanibel, Florida. Chain is rusted and seized and the cranks are missing the pedals. I donít know how you could ride it, but there it is in the rack, ready.

    Hereís a sad bike we encountered en route to pay tribute to the great Jim Morrison.

    Sad Bikes-3f049462-bfdd-4f15-af76-cf2ff90e3a97.jpg

    This next one is in Amsterdam. One of at least a dozen similar sites we witnessed, all within walking...errr, riding...distance during our 8 hour layover...

    Sad Bikes-e9a438e6-57af-41e6-8957-3ca3914917fd.jpg

    Although I didnít actually see a sad bike among those massive Amsterdam piles, I suspect that statistically, there had to be at least one in there somewhere.

    I think there are more bikes than people in Amsterdam.

    Hereís a triple decker. I was blown away by the number of bike piles all over the place. Endless piles.

    And yeah C2L - you nailed it. Centraal area.

    Even at 12 noon there was window shopping available for those so inclined (to be clear, that was NOT me). Another thing I hadnít seen before. Had a beer in Dam Square as well and did lots of walking, browsing and just taking in the vibe. All interesting, but not a place I would stay as a destination. Great for an 8 hour layover though.

    The ultimate solution to continual pedal strikes, as well as an interesting reversal of the varying wheelsize approach. Definitely not buying into the long, low and slack modern geo thing. For bad asses only.

    Love this advert! The message is bang on Sad that we have to continue to remind people that there are cyclists on the road

    WOW! Perhaps we need more graphical reminders.

    Another sad bike along the canals of Amsterdam...

    might have to look close to see the cobwebs.

    Someone went through a lot of time and labor to create those 3lb. fenders.

    Yeah, I talked to the owner of that bike a couple years ago, he works at the local Meijer's grocery store, commutes every day, I was trying to talk him into using different tires, like Jumbo Jims, anything rolls better than Nate's on a commute. I also mentioned they make plastic fenders kits that work pretty good, he just gave me a dumb look, nice guy but not playing with a full deck.
    If you look close you'll see he doesnít lock it up, he's using those crazy twist ties around his fender and bike rack, and the same up higher, that lock appears to be on to the bike rack, not around his frame.

    Yeah, I want to make some fenders for my 29+ but I don't think I will for fear they'll look like that :P

    If you're going to tie a bike outside and leave it unattended, the last thing you want the bike to be is good looking.
