In the parliament building in the Hague, they have (had?) an installation/sculpture of stuff they dragged out of the water in front of the building. At the top was a bicycle. Around here (Boston, MA, USA), it's shopping carts as opposed to bicycles in the rivers and canals.
What happens to the bikes next? Refurbished? Auctioned? Sent to needy countries such as the USA?
Catch & release?
The picture series say that the "bicycles and other rubbish" will be destroyed when they have finished clearing the canals.Rasmus Jensen
When I grow up I want to be a little old man living in a little old bike shed bringing these bikes back to usability.Better yet people should toss the bikes into my shed yard rather than the canal; that would make the work a lot easier.
Why the hell there are bikes in the canals? What happened? The wind?
