OK ... so the more I relay the happy story about the return of my bike, Delores, the more I hear about other bikes having been ripped off. So ... The Free Venice Beachhead - which was so instrumental in my getting Delores back (see September Blogtown or Beachhead) - Collective has agreed to run photos in the paper with descriptions of the stolen bike for the low, low, Beachhead-sustaining cost of $5.00 US. It really can work, so spread the word. Let's run these photos and keep our eyes and ears open so that we can share the story of happy reunions all around town.
We're still on the hunt for Nathan's (BON VOYAGE, NATH!!!) Purple Stingray:
He's out there somewhere. The Audacity of HOPE!!! But for real, it worked for me, and this town checks out bikes and is not afraid to say something to that low, low form of humanity - bike thieves. Blech.
Send photos and bike descriptions to Beachhead@Freevenice.org.
Send your check for 5 bucks to Free Venice Beachhead, PO Box 2, Venice, CA, 90294.
Let's do this.
