Imagine a world without bikes. No really, imagine it. It’s pretty funny.
Yes, there is a Subreddit devoted to the art of Photoshopping away the Schwinns from under would-be riders.

Recumbent bikes, not surprisingly, yield the most ridiculous images (as they do in real life).
Check out a few of my favorites below to see what happens when bikes disappear, or head over to /r/InvisibleBicycles for more Friday fun.
