My son-in-law is one of the hardest workers that I know. Lately he has allowed himself one "guilty pleasure," bicycling. I have mentioned a few times how proud I am of him as he did the Chilly Hilly a few months back, and the Seattle to Portland (STP) a couple of weeks ago. He has been going to the track and racing with a group as well; a group that includes his oldest daughter's Kindergarten teacher.
That all ended today when he went out and found his bike had been stolen off the front porch of their house. It is pretty creepy to think that there was a person, or persons, wandering around, and going through gates, next to my grand daughter's bedroom.
His was a pretty unique bike. Very few were made, and he was quite proud of it. He had customized it to better fit his needs. He has also been riding it to work daily. They also took his new helmet and gloves. Yep, that would be the helmet that replaced the one that he split when he had the bike accident and brain bruise a while back.
Scum bags! The police have been notified and we are watching Craig's List. It is just such a violation. Having lived in a house that was burglarized a couple of times it brings back a lot of anger.
The chances are slim, but I hope it shows up and the guy gets busted! I am grateful for insurance, but as in all vehicles it rarely covers replacement.
