How to dispose of an elderly bicycle – Melbourne style

Cycling the Capital City Trail in and around Melbourne I came across this old, rusty bicycle thrown in the river.  The waterway may be part of the Yarra but I am not sure of the geography.

The trail was passing through an interesting area running under the Westgate Bridge, two train tracks, other roads and against a waterway that has seen better days.  Very interesting.  Very unlike Longford.


Scott.  When you have a moment could you add a couple more Categories please.  Under Australia – Victoria and New South Wales.  Oh – and South Australia as I intend to ride there within a few months.

    Agrees with Suzanne.
    Like JR’s salvage, you never know what you might see thrown in the North Fork either.
    Very nice Brompton!

      Melbourne has a lot of it’s hire bikes ending up in the Yarra but this was just an old wreck. Not worth pulling out.

        Also in San Francisco and Oakland, many “dockless” rental bikes get thrown into the water. When not “on the clock” with a rider, they end up being easy to vandalize.
