“Right now I’m averaging a stolen bike 1 per 2.8 years”

New bike 2009

“Dear PoPville,

I was in the middle of moving from Columbia heights to Shaw and my bike got stolen out of my car at my house in the 900 block of Monroe St, NW. It’s a 47 cm black and yellow Felt road bike. It’s not expensive but I love love love that bike.”

“Dear PoPville,

My beloved ride was stolen off my porch in between 5th and Randolph St, NW just yesterday. It’s not a sweet ride like the giant orange commuter bike stolen a month ago, nor is it a high end speedster. It was my little white ghost that i bought off ebay and lovingly added the best that I could afford over time.

I wrote an obit just to find closure incase it’s not recovered:

So long good friend. Right now I’m averaging a stolen bike 1 per 2.8 years. I remember when I first bought you off ebay and I’ve been slowly hooking you up with the new brakes, derailleurs, rims, tires and the like. You became my own. Now, you’re probably chopped up or being sold to support a drug habit. Nothing will replace the good times we had. The night rides, the all day trips with my wife. The getaways around town. Even the days out back fixing you up.. when really, I just needed to get out the house lol. So long good friend.”
