Where Exercise Bikes Go to Die

The exercise equipment conference is over. Maybe the property owner got fed up. Maybe morons started dumping real garbage. Whatever the reason, the site has been cleared of equipment and now sports a lovely -- but quirkless -- view.

Where Exercise Bikes Go to Die

Apparently you can't give the things away. So there they sit, over a dozen pieces of exercise equipment, gathered at the eastern shore of one of the most scenic spots in Washington. Forget the bike in the tree, vandalized beyond repair. Come and visit with these happy symbols of abandoned New Year's resolutions, relax, and admire the view.
