Mob Returns Stolen Bike

Aug 17, 2007
Cheryl was 30 year old single woman who enjoyed bicycle Riding. She loved to ride through the neighborhood. Everyone knew her as that nice friendly girl on the fancy bicycle. It was a hand crafted English racing bicycle, custom made just for her.

She was very proud of it because no onelse had one like it. One day she was riding her bicycle as a part of her daily routine. She rode past a wooded area in one of the neighbor hoods. There were usually lots of riders there, but today the trail was empty. As she passed a large brush, something hit her and made her loose control of her bicycle.

She fell and the bike went down too. As she was checking herself for injury, she saw a strange man approaching her he did not look very friendly. At that moment she realized that this guy had caused the accident and was about to cause her some major trouble. Lucklily she was not injured, so she rose to her feet, and started to run. The guy stopped, picked up her bike and proceeded to chase her.

She ran and ran until she came upon some other riders. She told them what had happened and they called the police. They also began a mob style chase of the guy with their bikes. They finally caught up with the guy and surrounded him until the police arrived. The guy was arrested and the bike returned to Cheryl.

Bicycle riding can be lots of fun. There are many hazards associated with riding bikes. Besides coexisting with other vehicles, bike riders have very little protection from the outside world. They are the subjects of animal, and vehicle attacks. They are also at risk from criminal attacks.

Always make sure your bicycle is in excellent mechanical condition as it may be you only means of escape in case of an emergency. Carry a cell phone to call for help, but do not rely on it for defense. If you choose to ride at night, keep your bike and yourself well illuminated. Obey the traffic laws when riding a bike.

If you choose to disobey traffic signals, you are more likely to become an accident victim. Ride on trails and roads designed for bike riding. Steer clear of area with low visibility. Criminals use this cover to hide for attacks. When possible, bike with a friend. There is safety in numbers and it makes you a less inviting target.

Carry a small package of emergency supplies with you on your ride. Bicycling is much like being a pilot you should file a plan that tells someone where you are going, in case of emergency. If you are going to park your bike be aware of the area where you park.

A parked bike is an indication that someone is riding and will return to claim the bike. A criminal can stake out the parking area and wait for you to return. As with automobiles check the area upon approach to your bike. Always lock your bike and be aware of your surroundings when unlocking.
