Left your bike at Oxford station?

"Abandoned" bikes to removed from Didcot (and Oxford) stations.

POLICE are 'culling' the bike racks at Oxford and Didcot train stations after commuters 'abandoned' their bikes.

In a now-deleted tweet, Oxfordshire's British Transport Police warned cyclists that they have until February 22 to remove their bikes.

It strikes me that during lockdown, a lot of otherwise regular commuters won't even be there to see the signs.
Riding a bike through a city is like navigating the collective neural pathways of a vast global mind.

They tend to do a cull every year (the number of rusty, wheel-less bikes makes it necessary).  I suspect that this will get postponed until after the lockdown now.
