Millions of bicycles are left abandoned in several cities in China as a result of an oversupply from Bike-share services. At first, these companies thought that this kind of business would boom, but unfortunately, to their dismay, it did not.

Ever since the fall of Bike-share companies, the government is trying to figure out what to do with the bicycle graveyards. See some of the photos below:
