The Biker

I spotted this squirrel just off Bloor St W as she enjoyed her lunch while perched on the seat of one of the many abandoned bikes that you can find around the city. For some unknown reason people lock bikes to racks and then never return, leaving them to rust and also to take up the spaces for locking your bike. It is a mystery!

What a cute photo and great capture. I can't imagine why anyone would lock up a bicycle and just leave it. What a waste.

He'll have trouble reaching the pedals!
Same thing happens with bikes over here. From time to time the police round them all up and auction them. There was also a plan to let the unemployed fix the bikes at one time, not sure if that still happens.

Hello,

LOL, cute biker squirrel! It is strange people would lock up a bike and never return to get it. That is a mystery. Take care and stay safe. Thank you for linking up your post. Enjoy your day, have a happy weekend.

Cute shot, well seen! Perhaps people just forget where they left their bikes?

If only he could reach the pedals!

Funniest thing I've seen all day. I've never heard of a problem with locked, abandoned bikes anywhere. BTW, work on the return of the portal is proceeding apace.

The rider of this bike seems very happy to be there, and he has lunch too.

Convenient spot for a bite to eat.
It's a shame the bikes aren't claimed.

People are weird. Squirrels are cool.
