What to do with the old bike when you do not need it anymore? Simple solution - throw it into the canal!
I was amazed seeing this scene from one of the bridges of Amsterdam. It happened that after the grabbing in water the big blue spoon had more than one bike at once. And also a trolley from supermarket.

a crazy city, Amsterdam! But maybe the Amsterdammers don´t throw their own bikes in the canal to get rid of it, but thiefs or hooligans do it. And I heard, it´s not too seldom that cars have to be saved by a crane.
Have a nice 1st of may!

What a glorious site !
You hear stories of the old bikes going over the parapet, but this is a wonderful illustration of the fact !
I bet the price of scrap these days means junking them over the wall has stopped, but I guess these guys will be busy for a while longer !
Well seen and TFS !

Il y a moyen de recycler assez facilement. Mais c'est incroyable de voir le nombre de bicyclettes que vous tuez a force de les utiliser.

Very interesting capture. They must have a big industry of recycling bykes. Well taken!

This is interesting, informative and amusing. It's also a colourful foreground and a typically Dutch background. Slightly tilted but not disturbing.

In a country with so many bikes, no wondrr somebody and someway has to remove the old for the new, Malgo.
Nice idea, collected well on a colorfuil corener on canal-side.

Une photo originale d'Amsterdam! Le pensais les habitants de la ville plus écologistes; drôle de façon de se débarrasser de ses vélos usés!
