I’m not sure if this is an April Fools prank or the real thing, but this message has just been posted in the Zoobomb forum:
“Your “Zoo Run” is over!!!! your bikes are gone. You can forget about them. They didn’t float. The whole thing is tired and you should all get jobs or do something productive. We are all sick of you and your lame shinanagans. Give it up. You are a traffic hazard and a threat to safety. Stop before you kill someone. You just suck!!!!!!
And here’s the reaction from a veteran Zoobomber:
“Some redneck bikefun hater has stolen the (in)famous Zoobomb bike pile and (apparentely) dumped the mini bikes in the Willamete river. For those who don’t know, the bike pile consists of mini bikes that zoobombers build/donate/take care, so anyone can ride them down the west hills on Sunday nights. We’ve been accused many times of causing trouble, but the fact is that we don’t mess up with people’s s$#%, we pack our trash and so on, and this is just one more episode when some emotionally challenged idiot try to make “justice’ with their own hands and causing us damage. Of course, we won’t stop and, hopefully, this will just make us stronger.”
I hope this is all a funny joke, but even if it’s not, the Zoobombers are much more than a few bikes in a pile and they will come back even stronger than before.
