Has a junky or lowlife ever stolen your bike? They’ve claimed a few of mine. There was the time I walked home from my cleaning job. The time I walked home from uni. And the time I realised my $10 tip shop bike had been missing for some time.
The good news is some kindly Samaritan might buy them and return them to me. Like this guy did:
WHEN he went for a walk to the shop on Saturday night, Mikey Robinson wasn’t planning on becoming a good Samaritan.
But that’s exactly what happened when he turned a criminal act into a heartwarming story.
Mr Robinson, 37, from the Melbourne suburb of Collingwood, was walking home from the shops after buying milk when he was approached by “two really seedy dudes” wheeling a shiny, yellow bicycle.
The men stopped Mr Robinson and asked whether he wanted to buy the bike for $70.
Mr Robinson, who owns his own bicycle, immediately thought the bike had been stolen “from someone who had put a lot of love into it”.
“I thought maybe if I bought it I could put it on the internet, I could find its owner,” he said. “It just seemed like the right thing to do.”

Probably he shouldn’t leave his bike outside a pub. And he wouldn’t need to if he had this bike:
Looks to me more like the sort of thing you should stash in your Chunky Toad
but I’m sure the idea of having a six pack swinging between your knees appeals to some people.
