Samantha Johnson (America’s Got Talent)

Rode to the Friday night concert on Pier 3 in New Bedford, Ma. The funk band was killing it and ended their first set with a great rendition of Bruno Mars Uptown Funk. After the mayor introduced New Bedford’s own Samantha Johnson who had the crowd and judges standing and screaming at her audition. She took the stage and thanked the city for all the support, reminded us to vote and let loose with a great Stevie Wonder song.

Protect Your Bike and Today’s Ride in Portsmouth and Tiverton, RI

If your bike is stolen and you don’t know the serial number, it could be difficult to claim your bike if found. It’s not uncommon for you to have to bid on it at the police auction if you don’t have proof of ownership. There are two really good resources to help recover a stolen bike.  The catch is that we have to get people to join the community because is no one knows there is a stolen bike in town, no one can report it.  So pass on the two following resources to your bike community.  There is only one feeling worse than having your bike stolen and that is when none of those who can help recover it, know it’s stolen.

Project 529

Website and app that lets you build a (hidden) profile for your bike(s) and record serial numbers, photos and identifying characteristics. If it is ever stolen you can alert other users immediately, and you can browse local stolen bikes in case you hapen to spot one.                                                        Project 529.com

Bike Index

A national registry with more than 45.000 serial numbers recorded that helps users, bike shops and law enforcemtne find owners of recovered bikes. It’s open API can be integrated with the inventory software used by ike shops to automatically register bikes as they’re sold.                                                                                                                                                                                      bikeindex.org
