Wonder if the sapling grew around the bicycle, or a trickster nailed two pieces of a bicycle to the tree? The story is that in 1954, Don Puz received a bike as a gift. While out one day with his friends, he left the bike in the woods and never went back for it. 40 years later his family read an article in the paper that a bike had been found embedded in a tree! Hard to believe that a brand new bicycle would be left behind and never retrieved.
