We always knew that trees could do wonderful and magic things; even eat a bike. Here’s the story. In 1954 a recently widowed woman gave her son a bicycle. However, it was a girl’s bike and the boy was too embarrassed to ride it. So he brought the bike into the woods and left it against a tree. He told his mother he lost it, and all was forgotten. Over the years the tree has grown around the bike, which is now 5ft off the ground.
Kevin Dolak’s ABCNews article, Bicylceswalledbyreeinwashingtonstate tells more of the story.
Well, the tree that swallowed the bike is a record breaker; but the tree that you can drive through might top it. California’s Drive-Through Chandelier tree is a coastal redwood that’s over 300 feet high, and 6 feet wide. It’s showcased in the opening titles of National Lampoon’s Vacation.
