Lean it here in Lima: bicycle rack

IMG_2042

My friends Melanie and John Martin just hiked to Peru’s Machu Picchu. Given its 15th century origins, theĀ Incan site is sadly lacking in ancient bicycle-related artifacts. Which means Lima, the country’s capital, has something that Machu Picchu does not: this flower-bedecked bicycle rack.

And that, friends, is the advantage of being founded in the 16th century.

Thanks for the picture, Melanie.

    Nice. Looks like an upgraded version of this I saw in Victoria, BC. Hope no one needs in that manhole.
