Recovering a Stolen Bike With Pedal Power

When one of Rock the Bike's best cargo bikes was stolen after a meeting a few weeks ago, team members reached out to friends on social media, friends and a stolen bike recovery network to keep an eye out. So when one of the crewmembers spotted the highly-customized Mundo 500 locked to a sign in his neighborhood. 

They called SFPD to report it, stuck their own lock on it and came back in the morning with an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel and a Rock the Bike Pedal Power Utility Box to collect the energy from two different bike generators to saw off the offending lock. All of which is captured in the video above.

Have you ever had your bike stolen? Did you get it back?
