Does one park a bicycle?
This sign, spotted earlier in a commercial building, definitely got me thinking.
In the past, I may have locked my bike to something. I may have left it somewhere. I may even have put it somewhere.
My last bike was stolen over a year ago so I haven’t thought much on what I do with bicycles since. But I have contemplated since seeing this sign and cannot recall any occasion where I might have parked my bike.
Maybe more evidence that I am out of step with the real world, or at least Dublin. Or maybe I just think too much….. or not enough….
