Dear PoP – What the Helen of Troy is This?

“Dear PoP,

I was participating in the DC Servathon this weekend and came upon a chainlink fence off of Georgia Ave, by the Howard U Gadget Center (Gresham-ish cross street), with several padlocks on it. Being a silly suburbanite, I assume that they mean something. Do you know what these locks mean, if anything?”

Well I consider myself fairly urban and I wondered the same thing last March!

I’m not sure if we ever figured it out but at the time WDC had a good guess:

“A memorial to stolen bikes?”
