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!
