Southern Ontario has been in the grip of winter for the last 3,000 hours -- which is a lot of time that could have been spent cycling.
Caught in that icy grasp are orphan bicycles, locked up awaiting a better cycling day that just never came. Eventually, there will be a thaw, and the two-wheelers locked into snowbanks around the city will transform from bicicles to bicycles.

This bike, at the House of Friendship, looks like it was trying to crest the snow bank that trapped it.
On a Queen Street alley in Kitchener: no front tire and no saddle. No wonder it's going nowhere.
I recall a March not so many years ago that I was out doing training rides on the local rural roads every weekend. The roads were dry and the birds were singing.
It's March on Saturday. Training rides, anyone?
