Queen Village taking on fallen soldiers, er, abandoned bike chunks

Do you hate urban clutter? Hate abandoned bikes? Believe that a day is wasted if you don’t use an angle cutter to slice through metal?

Then, boy, do a group of concerned Queen Villagers have the perfect project for you. The Queen Village Neighbors Association has been given permission to cut loose the abandoned bicycles left chained to sign poles and other neighborhood fixtures.

The group needs volunteers to help cut and drive other cutters around during the clean-up, scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m.

“Liberated” bikes will be sent to Neighborhood Bike Works, which runs recreation programs for the city’s youth. If volunteers become attached to any bikes they detach, they have the option of buying them from the Bike Works.

Those interested should send their RSVP to 19147bikes@gmail.com. Seen a bike ripe for cutting? You can notify the Neighbors Association using this online form.

Happy hunting.
