World Exotica party to benefit local bike club

Friday, September 29th, 2006
[Event flyer]

Way back in February I wrote about a new bike club in Portland called the Community Exchange Cycle Touring Club.

Since then this upstart club — led by Steven Kung — has been very busy. They’ve been leading weekly rides, hosting bike repair clinics at their Community Exchange Bike School (2503 SE Division), working with local schools, recycling used bikes back into the community, and have been active as volunteers at many events.


Your stolen bike is on Craigslist…now what?

Friday, September 29th, 2006
[Hey! That’s my bike!]

The other day I got a phone call from a reader in distress. He found his wife’s bike for sale on Craigslist. He was sure it was her bike, but he wasn’t sure how to proceed. I didn’t really have a good answer for him so I asked Officer Robert Pickett of the Southeast Precinct.

He then asked a detective and this is what she said:

1. The person must be able to prove that it is his/her stolen bicycle. This probably means having already reported it stolen to the police, including the bike’s serial number or unique characteristics in the stolen report. If there is any question at all as to the ownership of the bicycle, there is nothing that we will be able to do about it. Unfortunately if there is ever a situation where it is simply one person’s word against the other, we often can’t act.


Some streets are made for dancing, not driving

Last night was the Last Thursday art celebration on NE Alberta Street. As usual, hoardes of people spilled off the crowded sidewalks and into the streets.
