    What a great idea!

    • Norwood says:

      What’s so great about it? Are they trying to save money? Kids deserve more than one place to lock up their bikes. If I lived their I’d mad as bunch of hornets.

      • Norwood says:

        After I’ve had time to sober, I realize that many of you think I may be a resident of Idiotville, but I assure you I am not. My grammar is usually flawless, but under less than ideal conditions sometimes my thoughts are not relayed correctly to my finger tips. I apologize for any past or future such incidents.

    ????? What?????

    Notice the sign on the building across the street? Part of it is upside down. WTF?

  6. Karen Too says:

    I thought it might be something like this, until I read the “Read more!” link:

  7. Marshall in RVA says:

    “Ride On” People!

  8. Donna in MI says:

    Dorinda, and for those of you who are not members of Facebook, you can still go to and view Matt’s Facebook page. I’m not a member, but I clicked on the link that Gigi posted, (thank you!!) and it took me directly to his FB page. (I did not have to log in). Just click on the link below and his FB page opens.

    While there you can read about a poster named Barry, who posted back in July from Aachen, Germany. He was in the States and was driving a car on a trip thru WA and OR, when he saw a man pushing a cart near Stonehenge. That jogged his mind, and he convinced his passenger to hang out the window and take a picture of Hobo Matt just walkin’ near Maryhill, WA. You can see that picture on FB.

  9. Jeff says:

    at least they are not ghost bikes.

  10. Don in Tennessee says:

    A lot of spooks to be heard! What a great idea. Hope they cn keep this rolling.

  11. MN Roxanne says:

    What a great bike sculpture… Zoobomb is cool….

  12. Candice in Alabama says:

    Ouch – I hope this doesn’t represent the “bad” or “unexpected” end of a zoobombing ride.

    • Candice in Alabama says:

      For some reason, I ALWAYS have this fear that my front tire is going to come off my bike, when speeding down a hill. I never had that fear as a child!

  13. Janine says:

    I wonder how many loaner bikes are used every week? I wanna join! Don’t think I’d fit on a mini-bike, though.

    “Oh what fun it is to ride in Portland Oregon all day! Hey!” (Totally great story in the Read More link). Loved it.
