Location: , Cambridge District (England, UK)

England can't compete with New England's autumn colours but all around Cambridge the vines are catching fire. Most of them are on venerable college buildings, but this beauty is on the wall of an early 20th century workshop building, now a dance studio. #FlikrFriday #WarmColours

111401Photo #111401These racks are very heavily used and in their desperate need to park securely the bikes are being moved so that more bikes can be attached. The result looks very untidy and is not a great advertisement for more racks, which is what is really needed here.

There are two bikes on the same side of a rack on at least two of the stands.
