Have you ever had your bike stolen? It's kind of a right of passage for passionate bicyclists. Mine was stolen after someone literally pulled the pipe it was locked to out of the ground to get it. It was kind of funny, but yeah, it upset me.
Bicyclist and blogger Amanda Needham wrote a post about her own bike thief experience, and it actually has kind of a happy ending.
Needham lives in Carroll Gardens, and writes that her bike was stolen for reasons that were "partly" her fault—she didn't adequately lock it up. But, adds it was "100% the fault of the person who stole it."
