A Florida man, who was reportedly wanted in Washington, California, Nevada, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida, was arrested after attempting to pawn $40,000 worth of stolen mountain bikes in Boise, Idaho.
The owner of a local outdoor store that buys used bikes became suspicious after discovering a bike shop’s sticker on one of the bikes. After calling the bike store and confirming the bike had been stolen, the owner of the outdoor store called the police. After following the suspect for several blocks, the police performed a traffic stop, discovered the thief had a criminal record, and found 11 stolen bikes inside his storage van.

Things were a little different this year, but looked just as rowdy as ever, with lots of carnage and pile-up crashes throughout the day. I mean, come on, what’s there not to like about blasting euro techno at the start line while you and 50 other riders all-out
You know what’s more annoying than wearing a mask? A COVID-19 outbreak running rampant in your town, forcing local small businesses to close, overwhelming your healthcare system, and threatening the lives of the immunocompromised members of your community. We’d say that’s way worse than wearing a cloth mask for 10 minutes while you’re grocery shopping. The reality is that we all crave normal life, but that won’t happen anytime soon if we don't all do our part. The data shows that the
