Yes, another first on Lamma, first-ever bike clearing inside the Bike Park.

Expect a lot less bikes in there afterwards, but it'll probably fill up almost permanently within a few weeks with (semi)abandoned bikes and long-time storage.

The government will steal any bikes left in the CPA on 10-12 July 2018. No way to get them back (legally). Could try at the bike dump by the reservoir, but I expect the workers will pick off any good ones before they leave the rest there. ...

Looks like they have a fair number of 'abandoned' bikes to drag kicking a screaming from their 'legal' abode

Well, that didn't take long... The day after the clearance the "illegally parked" bikes are back, taking a 1-day break, till the next clearance..... No choice; there are well over 100 bikes left after the official CPA is 100% full. Without ...

There were about 20-30 "new" bikes at the bike graveyard near the reservoir this evening. They all had notices dated 3 Jan stapled to them so it seems we still get 2 days' notice. Nothing really nice, but maybe half were either rideable ...
