Auction provides cheap wheels by peddling bikes left on campus

Every year, UNC Transportation and Parking auctions off bicycles that have been abandoned on campus. Wednesday night, 185 bikes were up for bids in the basement of the Kenan-Flagler parking deck.

As Tajahn Wilson reports, it was a chance to meet new faces and get some fairly new bikes.
