This bicycle has been locked up near Lord Dalhousie Drive since last fall. Rusted, seatless and alone, it does offence to our fragile senses. We banish thee, crippled chariot!

Remarks: Forgotten bikes sit on campus until they’re deemed “derelict” (like fine art, you just know it when you see it). Then, Coolen and campus security form a lock-cutting posse. According to a Dal security officer, the university stores forgotten bikes and auctions them off “every two years or so.” As for this bike, Coolen vows to check out the situation. Maybe one day someone will adopt our little orphan friend (seat sold separately).


Who’s responsible: Peter Coolen, Studley Campus supervisor for Dalhousie University. 494-6765.
