I’m the guy with the bike up against the trailer. Good news, though. The Fort Dodge police found my bike (a Trek carbon fiber). Bad news, though. I was already back in Arizona. Working on getting it home. Thank you Fort Dodge PD.

I’m glad you got your bike back

If you haven’t done so already, I’d suggest contacting Walker Bike Shop in Fort Dodge (808 1st Ave N; Fort Dodge , Iowa , 50501 – ph. 515-576-3330). They’re the local Trek franchise, and I’m sure they’d be willing to help re-unite you and your bike. If you can come to so sort of agreement with them,l then you can make some arrangements with the police to turn the bike over to them so they can ship it back to you, properly packed and padded, so that it arrives safe and sound. It may cost a bit, but it’ll still be cheaper than driving back to Iowa to retrieve it yourself.

Walker’s already has the bike. They’re checking it out for structural damage to the carbon fiber frame. If it’s good they’ll ship it to Arizona. And for the record, this was my 16th RAGBRAI and I’ve never locked my bike in Iowa. Guess I’ll do that on the 17th.

End of the story. Walker’s Bike has it boxed and is shipping it out today. Great service. And great service from FDPD. Thank you all.
