Without wishing to be confrontational, can anyone explain why roadies find it acceptable to just ditch their Co2 bottles in the road?
Same reason there are random plastic trash at any road.
Motorcylists use them as well. Never used one, I have a pump with me at all times.

CO2 bottles? you mean to inflate wheels after a puncture?

I don't know many that use them, but I've never seen one been thrown away after an emergency repair.

Personally I use tubeless, and you can't use CO2 to inflate tubeless wheels (it dries the sealant). Not that I've ever punctured since switching though.
Same for me on both, never seen anyone throwing a canister and switched to tubeless

Probably not from cyclists but from kids who use it as a drug. Quite a huge problem in NL at least!
Agree @Peter84
Quite often find a small pile of them at my allotment car park. It’s not a thoroughfare for cyclists so most probably youngsters getting high.

It sounds like discarded nitrous oxide (laughing gas) containers from substance abuse, especially if there is more than one. They look the same shape and size.

Trailcenter Ftan near Scuol. Not crowded and brandnew, worth visiting area when travelling to/from Innsbruck, Ofenpass/St. Moritz.
