unusual bike veiws

Thought I'd start off a thread on unusual veiws of bikes. This one spotted outside of village called Shrewley to the west of Lemington Spa.

Isn't there a bike in a tree somewhere?
I'm sure it was featured on this forum some time back.

Anyone know what thread it was in?

EDIT:
Ha Ha!
Found it!

From the trails up at Laggan near Strathpeffer...

If you go up that way pop into Square Wheels in Strathpeffer and spend some cash - the guy that runs it has great chat and has a lot to do with the quality of those trails.

Cheers,

David.

Neither of these are particularly unusual, but they are bikes stuck on the fronts of shops as advertising.
This first is my lbs

lbs, Cyclecare, High Wycombe


The second is a butchers in Lane End, Bucks. I believe that is shopping in the basket in the front, but it is difficult to see because the light is poor (I took the picture on the way home after work.) British Summertime, nice to have that extra hour of daylight.
