  1. Yeah, usually these last a year before someone takes them. The shrine of toys, flowers, pictures and memories last for years until they are full deteriorated.

    Really reminds you how dangerous it is to be a cyclist.

  2. Never knew. Nice idea but don’t cities take them away at some point? I can see cities immediately drafting up an ordinance that bans this or limits the time the bike remains…because, you know, city governments have solved every other problem.
