My Workcycles Bafkiets cargo bike was stolen – AND RETURNED!

Stolen Bakfiets Poster

My bakfiets cargo bike was stolen a few hours ago between 6:35 p.m. 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on May 21, 2016 from right in front of my shop (while I worked inside on a complicated antique bike repair).

I’m still in shock, but thanks to friends who’ve retweeted it, contact me, and shared my posts online, I’ve been able to remember the advice I’ve given people in a similar situation: go hard.

Flyers are going to be printed tomorrow morning and I’m going to be walking the area around the shop posting them up and talking to everyone I come into contact with about this. If you want to join, 9 a.m. at the Flying Pigeon on Sunday, May 22, 2016.

Help me get my bike back!

    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after going through many of the posts I realized
    it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly pleased
    I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!

    You’re so cool! I don’t think I’ve read through something like this before.
    So nice to find someone with original thoughts on this subject.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is one
    thing that is needed on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

    My partner and I stumbled over here by a different
    website and thought I might as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to going over your web page again.

    It’s very easy to find out any topic on net as compared to
    textbooks, as I found this piece of writing at this web page.
