I hate bike thieves.
As far as I’m concerned, anyone who could steal someone’s beloved ride is one of the lowest forms of human scum infesting the planet.
Especially when they target a friend of mine.
That’s what happened on Saturday when bike advocate, urban planner and fellow LACBC board member Herbie Huff had her ride stolen. The theft occurred between 11 am and 2:30 pm when her distictive-looking bike was taken from her garage in the Wilshire/La Brea area.
Be on the lookout for a 50 cm, black and yellow 1991 Trek 2300. If you spot it, call the police, then contact Herbie via Twitter. Or let me know and I’ll forward word to her.
Herbie is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. And no one is more committed to making our streets safer and more livable for everyone.
So let’s see if we can get this one back for her.
I encourage everyone to register their bikes with the National Bike Registry NBR) so if it is found, the police will know it is stolen and contact you.
