Waterloo Bikes Article
A story of bike theft and recovery from Waterloo bikes:
Remember how that feels? I’m sure many of you have had a bike stolen at some point, it’s kind of par for the course in bike ownership.
There’s the hassle of reporting it. Calling the police. Calling the insurance company. The feeling of loss, especially if the bike holds sentimental value. .
Wondering, what am I going to ride tomorrow …
Then there’s that feeling that another human being took something that was yours. Someone invaded your personal space and took something.
A silent frustration.
Unless of course it happened to snow in the morning. And you can see the boot prints leading up to your driveway, up the steps to your porch. The bolts ripped out of your brick house where your Brodie Force commuter once lived. Then you see the two familiar tire prints heading off down the street.
