Seen a few bikes with notices that they are going to be removed soon around where i live.

Does anyone know where they go? Just the dump?

    When I lived in Cambridge they held an auction at the police station every 3-4 months. Try ringing the police and asking?

  • I've done some investigating (while i should be working...). I think it's a council issue rather than the police. Well, i found the contact details of a Council person that deals with abandoned bikes and sent them an email to ask. Apparently they have five people knocking about dealing with this.

    Also seen the police auction site: http://www.bumblebeeauctions.co.uk/XcAP ... .asp?ID=24

  • I wished that I lived near to Avonmouth because that police auction site has a Dr Who scooter, how cool is that? 8)
  • Response from council:

    "They are stored for 1 month and then disposed of. I am sorry I cannot give you consent to take a bike as I don’t own it."

    Booo

    p.s. i really have not got much work done today.
