Mara Abbott reunited with stolen commuter bike

by CyclingTips

American Mara Abbott, who retired from racing after narrowly missing out on an Olympic medal in Rio de Janeiro in August, was reunited with her stolen commuter bike Monday.

Abbott, whose lifestyle that includes working at the local farmer’s market and teaching yoga classes, does not own a car and uses her bike as a primary mode of transportation.

Boulder, Colorado, newspaper The Daily Camera reported that Abbott’s Blue cyclocross bike was stolen from in front of her Boulder home sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning. Abbott said that she returned to her home on Friday night and was cold, so she went inside to grab a bite to eat with the intention of going outside and locking up her bicycle in the carport. The thief or thieves also stole a trailer that went with the bicycle.

On Monday, Abbott posted a photo of herself with her commuter bike, posting to Twitter, “A VERY good samaritan returned my bike to the @boulderpolice!!!! She is minus her trailer, though she has some new lights to show off…”
