Mayor McGinn says his wife’s bike was stolen

February 23rd, 2011 · No Comments

Greenwood resident Mayor Mike McGinn tweeted that someone stole his wife’s bike. “I know I’ve been encouraging people to ride bikes more, but I didn’t mean u could ‘borrow’ my wife’s bike w/o asking,” he wrote, later explaining that it was stolen after he rode it to work. “Peg is pissed,” he said.

McGinn posted a photo of the bike’s make and model, which looks remarkably similar to the bicycle he rode during a walking tour of Crown Hill last fall (above.) McGinn often commutes by bike — you may remember the “Mike Bikes” slogan from his campaign — and he often evangelizes two-wheel commuting, including the city’s Walk-Bike-Ride program.

If you see the bike, well, call the Seattle Police department’s non-emergency number at the North Precinct: 684-0850.
