Metro wants you to come pick up your bicycle (#DMVReads)

As the D.C. region has become friendlier to cyclists in recent years, many more residents are incorporating bikes into their daily commute. One unfortunate side effect however, has been a number of abandoned bikes left on racks outside Metro stations. As DCist reports, Metro is beginning the process of removing these bikes and clearing out the racks.

“In the coming weeks, Metro plans to tag the abandoned bikes and set about removing them...Metro released a photo summary of the bikes it found throughout its system in hopes that their owners will come and retrieve them within 10 days of being tagged. If not, the bikes will be removed and any working models may be sold at auction.”
