Residents of Hangzhou, China, can hop onto any one of at least 86,000 bicycles and ride wherever they like.

The bikes are easy to find, too, because people tends to leave them any old place.

Leaning against walls and lying in vacant lots.

Police have rounded up 23,000 bikes so far this year and hauled them to 16 corrals around the city.

From the ground, these bicycle graveyards look like junkyards.

Seen from above, they take on an impressionistic quality.
