I kept seeing all of these locks along the river when we were riding our bikes. Anywhere that there was fencing, I would see these locks piled up like in the image above. So when we got back to the bike shop to return the bikes I had to ask the owner what was going on with all the locks. The story goes that lovers go down along the river and solidify their love by placing a lock on the fence. He said eventually when the locks get all piled up, they start to put too much weight on the fence and the city has to come and cut them off. After hearing that, my question is whether or not this affected the relationships that were locked up. I guess the moral of the story is not put the future of your love in some outsider’s hands and do not waste your money on expensive locks to place on city property.
