Long-term bicycle parking

The Wood River (Ill.) Public Works Department recently discovered a bicycle that had been leaning against a tree for so long that the tree had grown completely around it, The (Alton) Telegraph reported today.

The old Western Flyer, complete with basket, was found in the back yard of a property the city was clearing in the 500 block of Park Lane. The newspaper reported that one theory is that many years ago, the bike was placed in the fork of the tree, which grew to consume the center portion of the bike.

The photo and brief article has generated quite a few comments. Feel free to add yours here or at The Telegraph's site.
