Revenge on the Underworld of Stolen Bikes

Bike theft has become an increasingly pressing issue in the United States. According the National Bike Registry and statistics accumulated by the FBI, somewhere around 1 million bike thefts occur each year totaling some 350 million dollars in lost property. Often under-publicized and not followed through by many police departments, bike theft continues to increase as there is little being done to prevent it. Patrick Symmes, an author staying in New York in 2006, was inspired to catch bike thieves after his bike was stolen in broad daylight in a busy New York City street. Symmes wrote a piece for Outside Magazine entitled “Who Pinched My Ride” which tells his cross-country journey that included “gps trackers, police stakeouts and sting operations” in his quest to understand and publicize the underworld of bike theft across the country. Bike theft is often over looked as many law enforcement agencies aren’t engaged in following through with bike theft cases. Patrick Symmes’ story captures a glaring need in biking: Their Protection.
