Take the Long Way Home

I always wondered what happens to these bikes when they’re abandoned on the street.  As with most things, a quick search of the inter webs will provide the answer.  The City of Toronto removes bikes during their annual spring clean up, or when residents report them.  The bikes are then sorted between those that can be salvaged for auction, and those that are scrapped for metal.

I guess the more interesting story would be, “Why was the bike abandoned?”
