One continual problem for Lambeth is the number of abandoned bike and bits of bikes. They clutter up the cycle parking, make our streets look ugly and can be a danger to passing pedestrians.
I went out this morning with Scott and Bradley who showed Paul Bird, one of our Environment Performance & Development Officers, and me exactly how easy it is to remove the bikes (given the right tools) and how many abandoned bikes there are.
The bikes are re-cycled through projects that strip them down and re-build them.
Scott and Bradley who also tackle graffiti and house clearances amongst many other things, are amazed at how some people abandon really valuable bikes.
If you know of a derelict cycle that needs removing let me know or contact Lambeth directly.
And this is how many bikes they found in one session in North Lambeth!
