The Beauty of China’s Bicycle Graveyards


A series of photos by The Guardian that shows an aerial view of the rental bikes removed by authorities in Chinese cities such as Beijing, Nanjing, Wuhan and Shanghai and the patterns they create. These shared bikes, which customers rent using their smartphones and can be dropped off anywhere, are considered a nuisance since they block pavements and apartment entrances. Inexperienced riders sometimes swerve into traffic and the bikes are often damaged, vandalized, or abandoned. Some of these bike share companies have gone bankrupt, leaving behind thousands of bikes that represent waste on an enormous scale.
