So I was riding along and stopped at a spot where the creek goes under the road. On each side there is a 3 ft high white cement wall.
I was hanging out on the wall filming the creek, when I pitched my camera down JUST enough and right under the bridge is a Trek (couldn't see what kind) sitting in the water.
It looked like it's only been there a couple days, so I could only surmise that someone stole this bike and threw it in the creek.
Here's the interesting part.
I went to my LBS that only sells Trek (90% sure the bike came from here. )
I asked if there was any reported stolen bikes, he said no. I told him it was a trek and that it was still pretty new. He didn't ask for my phone number / contact info. Honestly, I don't think he cared at all.
So my next stop was the police station
After talking to the cop and telling him the story, he said he'd go check it out.
LONG STORY LONGER
The bike is still there today....
I'm gonna fish it out, but I'm concerned about finding it's owner. Unfortunately I don't have the time to print out flyers and post them around town. I'm not trying to get a freebie here, but I also don't want it rusting in the creek.
