      Where do they go?

      I wonder how many bikes are in the Fietsdepot at any given time. I kinda want to visit.

    3. Amsterdamized 62 months ago | reply

      at any given guess is a few thousand. The depot processed 44.246 bikes in 2009.

      What a sad story; kind of like hearing about orphaned kitties. I do hope these unloved bikes are adopted, or at least, donated to a country with less.

      There must be incredible finds there. Is there a day of the month when these bikes are auctioned off?

      it's not that bad, it helps more people (who want to park and not trip over them) than it hurts. See the link to the Fietsdepot above, you can read the whole thing.
