This a common sight in Denmark, bicycle parking. Not that I would do that to my bicycle letting it stand out there by itself. Freezing it tyres off in the winters and in the summer no shade or cold drinks for it. I do not how in such a great country and with such great people that they can be so cruel to their bicycles. Its right up there with cruelty to animals.
“Have you oiled your bicycle chain today?” should be right up there with “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away. And should be on your daily agenda like walking your dog or give a good friend hug.
