At the university of Calgary, there's a sustainability initiative wherein bikes are left on campus, free to be used. It's not policed, it's just fixed up, some people fix them if they break (but they're singlespeed), and that's it!

They are left around everywhere, usually at major entranceways on campus (trains, buses, etc), and the idea is to let people that want to ride, ride. Conveniently.

Today, I saw someone riding this very bike down the road -- far off campus. I followed him home and reported it to the u of c, because it appalls me that someone would steal a bike that is very clearly fixed up and put out there for such an altruistic purpose.
