READER REPORT: Abandoned bicycle at former RV-encampment site

The report and photo are from Johnathan:

This bike was abandoned at a spot on Alaska between Delridge and 25th Ave SW, where an encampment was until last night. I figure it is probably stolen, so I thought I’d share with y’all in case someone is looking for it.

This is across from the ex-South West Plumbing site; we went by late today and the bike is still there, along with assorted junk, where a half-dozen RVs were parked as recently as Sunday afternoon.

    Seen on Capitol Hill- seems so appropriate.

      Can’t speak for that pole, but certainly our “virtual” pole has led to countless reunions (pets, some bicycles, cars, misc items) over the years …

    That bike is now  illegal to ride in Seattle!
    We have a weird code that requires all bikes to have a seat!  I can’t imagine why this is in regulations.  I
    t makes no exception for ‘trial bikes’  which are designed seat free.  

    I enjoy the guys I see in Lincoln Park performing tricks hopping rock to rock, log to rock,  hopping up onto benches and picnic tables.  Never queried them if they were aware of the law.
    We can now go helmet-free but not seat-free.
    I have no understanding of why the seats are stollen?

    Poetic, at the least.

Sorry, comment time is over.
