What does the township have 101 bikes for?
Sean McCullen (Editor) October 24, 2012 at 09:26 PM
The majority of these bikes likely are recovered by police after being abandoned in parks, on sidewalks, at shopping plazas, etc. In some cases, they may have been stolen, then dumped by the thieves after they used them to get where they needed to get. It's not uncommon for municipalities to have dozens of bikes like this. After not being claimed for so long (each town decides how long they'll hold onto them), they go out to auction.
