Gopro came in handy today.

I usually ride with a helmet mounted gopro during my commute and it paid off a little today. Came across a wobbly guy in his 60's going the wrong way on a narrow mup on a bridge. I glanced at the bike and noticed this urban camper was attempting to ride a nice masi that was a bit small for him and equipped with clipless road pedals (they don't work well with boots). Checked some local stolen listings and found that it was stolen a few months ago. Got some decent video of the guy and the bike that a local deputy came by to pick up. Hopefully they can track this putz down and get the bike back to it's owner.

Well done. Hope the owner gets his bicycle back and the thief gets a reasonable punishment.
