Grounds, DPS collect abandoned bikes

Groundskeeper Fred Voss cuts a lock off one of the many abandoned bicycles left in racks around the U-M campus and tagged by the Department of Public Safety (DPS) for removal. Officer Matt Kaplan, known to many as ‘the bicycle man,’ says that the University usually collects 300–400 abandoned bicycles each summer, but he expects only about 200 this year. The bikes are tagged by DPS officers, then removed and held for 30 days at Property Disposition. If they are unclaimed at that time, they are available for purchase at Property Disposition. Kaplan says long lines form at Property Disposition when they are offered for sale. Photo by Rebecca A. Doyle
