The Secret Life of Bikes

Perhaps you think of your bike as your best friend. Many cyclists do. You share so many times together, ride through the storms of the city (and of life) and celebrate the bright, clear patches. Like all good friends, you spend time apart. You're busy with meetings, study, work, dinners, films, music. Your steady, stalwart bike waits for your return. Or does it?

A new video from Sydney captures the times when your bike is on its own. You may have more to share than you realized.

Thanks to Ron Richings of Vancouver, BC for alerting local cyclists to this phenomenon.


  1. I was wondering why the miles on my odometer seemed to be advancing even though I wasn't riding...

  2. Now I feel bad about bikes being locked up.
