**Attn So Cal SART Riders and Shops In Area:Just Recieved the Email from Santa Ana PD

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

**Attn So Cal SART Riders and Shops In Area:Just Recieved the Email from Santa Ana PD

During the past two months there have been several robberies on the
Santa Ana Riverbed in Santa Ana between 17th Street and Edinger. The
robbers mostly target lone riders, usually between 6PM and 8PM. The
good news is that on Sunday, February 6th, three of the robbers were
caught. We showed their photos to some of the other victims who
identified them as being responsible in multiple robberies. SAPD is
confident that the primary robbery suspects are in custody. That said,
the riverbed borders several gang territories, so riders should use
appropriate caution and when possible, ride in pairs during evening
hours.

SAPD recovered two bicycles on 02-08-12. We are looking for the owner;
likely a bike shop since they appear brand new.

#1 SCATTANTE, Full Monocoque Carbon SL10, white frame with red,
black seat, black handle wrap, Schwalbe tires, Aclass alx730 wheels

#2 FUJI, Altimira 3.0, black frame with white and red, white seat,
white handle wrap, Hutchinson tires, Oval 330 wheels

It's posts like this that remind me why I'm so glad I moved from OC to NC (where I can CC, but that's OT).

Thanks for the announcement, Tom. It's a nice relief. Hopefully the owners of the bikes will be reunited with them.

Since there seems to be some NC love going on, I just wanted to say I love it here in Southern Pines.

Judging from the bike models, I'm going to say they were stolen from a Performance Bike.
