I see this all too often, Bike Down. Who knows how it happen’s, maybe just poorly secured in the beginning? Sometimes other riders park on the opposing side of the post and take your bike down or scratch it, sometimes worse.
I love my bike, and I like to think my fellow riders love their bikes too. You can see in the above picture this bike is partly out in the road. Subject to potential damage from a car pulling up to the curb. The rear wheel would be crushed and I can only imagine what else may happen.
I picked this bike up, I made sure it was standing secure. I would want someone to do that for me. Pay it forward eh. Just because its not your property, doesn’t mean someone doesn’t love it.
