A crèche being sponsored by a funeral home. Quite ingenious sense of business.

Reminds me of the Kristoffersen song "The Pilgrim - Chapter 33"... from the rocking of the cradle to the rolling of the hearse...

Insane-
Quote
Last year, bike sharing took off in China, with dozens of bike-share companies quickly flooding city streets with millions of brightly colored rental bicycles. However, the rapid growth vastly outpaced immediate demand and overwhelmed Chinese cities, where infrastructure and regulations were not prepared to handle a sudden flood of millions of shared bicycles. Riders would park bikes anywhere, or just abandon them, resulting in bicycles piling up and blocking already-crowded streets and pathways. As cities impounded derelict bikes by the thousands, they moved quickly to cap growth and regulate the industry. Vast piles of impounded, abandoned, and broken bicycles have become a familiar sight in many big cities. As some of the companies who jumped in too big and too early have begun to fold, their huge surplus of bicycles can be found collecting dust in vast vacant lots. Bike sharing remains very popular in China, and will likely continue to grow, just probably at a more sustainable rate. Meanwhile, we are left with these images of speculation gone wild—the piles of debris left behind after the bubble bursts.

Someone should import a few thousand and give it to "the people". They like free stuff and then they have trsnsport as well. Less taxis and less excuses.

And bicycles flooding the N2 yellow lanes from Guguleto to Cape Town  :o causing major chaos, at least fast food outlets will be coining due to very hungry "the people".  :ricky:

Childhood memories! That looks similar - but not quite! - to my father's backyard when I was a kid. He repaired, restored and sold bikes as a sideline, and the only bikes I ever had were what I cobbled together from bits and pieces he had lying around.
