KNOXVILLE - Police peddled 60 cycles Saturday at a sale of abandoned bikes. The event put many pedalers back on the road and reaped $602 for the city.
"They're guaranteed for 30 seconds or 30 millimeters, whichever comes first," Knoxville Police Chief Dan Losada warned potential buyers before turning them loose to choose from 91 bikes arranged outside a city shed at Roche and Rock Island Streets. Losada was asking 10 bucks a bike, but said he might be convinced to take less, especially the longer a bike sat on the lot.
