A while back, I posted about an apparently abandoned bike out in front of Ritz Deli North on George. The bike had been locked up at this rack since at least January and was slowly deteriorating.
Abandoned bikes always set off a cascade of questions. Who’s bike was it? Did it get stolen then abandoned? Did the owner just forget where they left the bike? Did their friend borrow it and forget it? Why leave it? Or is an upset someone, somewhere wondering about their lost bicycle?
