Cyclist seeks stolen racing bike’s return

Posted on June 22, 2022

My parents moved to Wilson in the early 1970s and soon after, they built a house in Jennings Acres. From that time to the present, they never had any thefts or vandalism to their property. My fiancé and I have been in Wilson since June 4 to stay and care for my 94-year-old mother. Around June 17, my Trek E-7 time trial bicycle was stolen from her garage.

The bike is all black and has Robar handlebars, small pedals for clip-in shoes and numerous decals and stickers. I purchased the bike in 2008 and have ridden it in more than 150 triathlons. I also participated in the 2019 Cycle North Carolina Mountains to Coast Ride with this bike, completing a course that spanned 700-plus miles.

Bikes can, of course, be replaced, but this one has great sentimental value to me. I would love to recover it, take it back to Michigan and hang it once again in my garage.

I would certainly appreciate any help in finding my bike and would be happy to text anyone a picture of it. Send me a text at 989-330-2597.

The Wilson Police Department has received my information and also has a picture of the bike.
