Update February 18: The auction has been canceled and will be held at some unknown point in the future.

M. Seaton Brown, president of the student body, wrote in an e-mail:
I’m sorry to inform you that the College of Charleston’s Student Government Association and Public Safety Bike Auction has been cancelled for the planned Thursday time. Logistical issues have required the event to be moved to another date and time. We will be sure to inform you of the next time.

We'll keep you posted.

First reporting: Every year many bikes are confiscated by the College of Charleston, but those bikes don't just disappear, they go up for auction.

And that auction is Thursday, February 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside of the Physicians Auditorium near Randolph Hall. -- Here's a map.

If you're in need of a bike, don't miss this auction.
