Dave Hemming, a 35 year-old bicycle industry veteran who works for Marin Bicycles, just moved to Portland a month ago.
He and his wife Molly moved all their belongings into their southeast Portland home on February 25th and then finished up some business back in northern California.
On Saturday March 10th, while they were still in California, their home was completely ransacked and burglarized.
“It’s just insane, they took so much…it’s such a harsh introduction to Portland.”
Dave hopes the eyes of the Portland bike community can help him track down some of his lost items, especially his UCI World Championship medal he won for downhill racing in 1990. The medal has a white ribbon and the signature rainbow colors.
Along with old family jewelry, electronics, and other household items, the bicycle-related items to keep our eyes open for include:
- A full Dainese body armor set (for downhill mountain biking)
- Five CamelBak hydration packs (fanny pack, TransAlp models)
- A “huge” amount of cycling clothing, mostly Pearl Izumi brand
The burglary occurred on March 10th, on the 3700 block of SE Franklin Street near SE 39th and SE Powell. If you have any information please contact Dave at davehemming[at]marinbikes[dot]com.
