jamesy from christchurch, New Zealand

the bike didn't fear too well I see

15 Apr 2009 5:13am

@jamesy: Looks like it was stuck in a snowbank and then hit by a snowplow, quite likely there was no rider involved......
Thank you for dropping in,

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

mais oui! il semble qu'il n'y a rien à faire pour elle!

15 Apr 2009 5:45am

@Paco Díaz: Elle a donnée son corps pour la science, peut-être un test de collision vélo contre charrue à neige? Merci de commenter la photo de Mathieu!

15 Apr 2009 7:00am

@Ben: Ich denke es wurde vom Schneepflug kaputtgemacht...
Vielen Dank für den Besuch!

Ce pauvre vélo a subi un drôle de traitement!

15 Apr 2009 8:25am

@Standley: Ce n'était pas un surplus de tendresse! Merci Richard!

Cheryl from Texas, United States

well seen and captured! Once again father time has given lots of character to his victim!

15 Apr 2009 9:32am

@Cheryl: Father time or an encounter with a snowplow! Thanks for commenting Mathieu's photo!

P J W Miller from Chase Terrace, United Kingdom

A very hard winter indeed I wonder where the rider is

15 Apr 2009 10:36am

@P J W Miller: The rider was probably sitting inside in a warm place while his bike was murdered by a psycopathic snowplow..... ;-) Thank you for your visit PJW,

zOOm from Paris, France

Et ben dis donc, ça a dû faire mal ! ;-)

15 Apr 2009 10:47am

@zOOm: À la bécane où à la charrue à neige? ;-) Merci zOOm!

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

Hopefully the rider fared better than the bike! ;-)))

15 Apr 2009 11:25am

@Eric Cousineau: I'm quite confident he did! Thank you for commenting Eric!

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

Whoa! Like Peter, I wonder how the rider came out of it.

15 Apr 2009 1:19pm

@john4jack: I'm sure he was not even near his bike when it was sent on to the bike heaven! Thanks Jack,

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Sacré chute, c'est sur... j'espère que le cycliste n'est pas dans le même état... Les hiver canadiens sont décidément dur à vivre pour tout le monde...

15 Apr 2009 1:40pm

@Evelyne Dubos: À voir les "blessures", je crois qu'il y a plus qu'une chute! Peut-être une rencontre avec une charrue à neige? Merci pour la visite Evelyne!

EYES WIDE SHUT from The library of my soul, United Kingdom

I think I will forego the pleasure of a ride! Like an abstract artwork, very well seen

15 Apr 2009 3:33pm

@EYES WIDE SHUT: Thank you for commenting Mathieu's photo EWS!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

I would say this one was ridden pretty hard. Well spotted.

15 Apr 2009 3:33pm

@Steve Rice: Probably ridden by a snowplow Steve! Thanks for your visit Steve!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Wow, the ruins of what was once a pretty nice bike say a lot about nature's uncaring of our property - or would that be the uncaring of the one who may have thrown it into the river to begin with? Hmm... Nice photo, either way.

15 Apr 2009 3:51pm

@Viewfinder: I guess you are right if you include a snowplow in "nature" Glenn! Thank you for the compliment!

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

It needs a little work before the first ride of spring.

15 Apr 2009 4:11pm

@Michael Rawluk: I guess a little spring cleaning is not enough in this case! Thanks for commenting Michael!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Looks like the snow was a bit rough to ride through. I hope whoever was riding the bike didn't go from a bass to soprano singer in a matter of seconds. ;-)

15 Apr 2009 4:25pm

@Steven: I'm quite certain he or she is ok! ;-) Thank you Steven!

Jean-François from Les Issambres, France

Il va repousser ??????????????????????? ..................... quelle image insolite ...................... sorti des glaces ???????

15 Apr 2009 4:26pm

@Jean-François: Repousser? Qui sait, avec des bons soins et de l'engrais? Merci de commenter la photo de Mathieu J-F!

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

Poor bike
