Wow, bicycles stolen at a RV Park

Well, I never thought it would happen but someone, actually more likely a couple of people, stole 2 of our bicycles. Staying at Palm Springs Thousand Trails and left our 4 bicycles next to the camper unlocked. 2 of them are gone. Yeah, shame on me for not locking them to begin with. Anyway, there goes close to a $1k down the drain.

I guess I will buy a chain and lock for the EMS now...

If anyone sees a couple of newer black and grey, Nishiki Colorado 29er MT Bikes, shoot me a PM.

Sorry to hear that. If you are still in the park, be sure to drive around after dark. That is how my camping neighbor found his. Young punks dumped'em in the weeds during the day and rode at night...

Drive around and post somebody familiar with the bikes at the exit. I would report it immediately as well.

check on Craigslist, offer up & let it go....might have been stolen for resale (down here someone went & 'bought' her bike back... made for an easy arrest)

I had three bikes stolen from behind my 6' privacy fence when I lived in San Antonio. Tow of them were never recovered, but one I found when I decided to check the local middle school bike racks. I saw my bike there, and contacted the school admin office and their "rent-a-cop". We stood away a bit after school was out, and sure enough, one of the kids came out and started to unlock it from the bike rack. We approached him (my wife, me, the rent-a-cop, and the principal of the school), and this kid nearly passed out from fright. Said he bought it for $10 dollars from a "friend" down the street from where he lived. He did try and fight it, until I pointed out to him where I engraved my name and phone number in the frame. I don't know what happened after that, I just got my bike back and it was between the kid, his parents, and the police.

Anyway, just thought I would share since you jogged a cell in the back of my brain.

Good luck getting yours back.

The after dark is a good idea..take a good flashlight to spot reflectors.

Unfortunately that’s standard in Ca if you haven’t noticed by now. The “working class” busts their butts to have nice things and “others” get to take them. Even if you found the person riding it around the police will do absolutely nothing to them. Sorry you had to deal with this BS.

Sorry for your loss, but Cali is the land of Fruit and Nuts. Seems that’s where a lot of the Low lives and depreves reside. Buy a good braided cable and krypton lock.

Believe me, it's just not in California. The meth-heads and low-lifes are everywhere.
