This morning, while on a group ride, we stopped at a downtown (Little Rock) bakery for coffee and a bite to eat. We were sitting outside, but around the corner from where I had my bike leaning against the building wall, along with two other bikes. The bikes were about 20 feet from where I was seated. When I walked over to my bike, it was gone.
The bike is a Cannondale Super Six. It is well equipped with Dura-Ace, SMP saddle, Mavic ES wheels, and on and on. Just gone. Also gone was my helmet, gloves, Garmin 500 and seat bag. One of my riding friends found one of my gloves in front of the apartments behind the bakery.
I called 911. The operator said I should call back on a non emergency number. I said I find this an emergency since the total value of the bike and equipment is about $7000.00 and I am 12 miles from my car with my transportation stolen. She agreed and did send an officer to record the theft.
I did not have a lock on the bike. Thought I was close enough to it. No insurance on the bike.
Weeping, Weeping, Weeping.
