Random shot of 'No Bikes' signs in Amsterdam. Taken with my HTC Desire using the Camera360 Android app.

Even though Amsterdam is the capital of bike-riding, in some areas our beloved bikes are not welcome, and ugly, stoopid signs remind us of that unfriendly fact. Since we are true rebels at heart, usually those signs are surrounded by bikes parking right next to, or underneath them, it's our way of telling 'The Man' "F U, we don't care, we'll leave our bikes wherever we want!" Of course we cry like wee little children when they actually cut open our locks and 'tow' our bikes from the 'No Parking' zones to the municipal bike storage depot, that is guarded by the horned evil gatekeepers of biker-hell, and they require hefty fees, a couple of pints of fresh blood and the occasional Virgin-sacrifice before returning the captured steel-horses to their rightful owners, those bastards...the gatekeepers, not the rightful owners, lol :D
