was there a common reason all the bikes were in one place? I am not sure to understand those questions right. You could say I was in a parking lot and thus there were bikes. The reason why they were there is rather irrelevant.

you parked your bike in a lot?
went away somewhere?
when you returned your bike was surrounded by other bikes?
was you bike chained?
are other chained bikes relevant?
did another rider run a chain through your bike making it impossible to leave?

So somebody (accidentally) chained your bike when you parked it and therefore you were immobilized and angry because of the inconvenience?

---------------SPOILER---------------

Once I wanted to take my bike to ride home after work but it was chained with a lock I had never seen before. I asked myself if someone wanted to play a trick on me. I left a note with my name on the bike and went home by bus. The next day I received an email with apologies, a colleague I don't know had been daydreaming while doing this.

Congratulations Sixtyeight and Beroean for solving this in only eight posts, thank you for playing!
