The last time we saw a cyclist’s note to her neighbours, it was all love, happiness, and kittens. But hope in humanity is so two years ago.
This week, someone left a not-so-nice note for an unnamed pedal pilferer on a bike post outside the Eaton Centre with the sentimental phrase, “Fuck you I hope you crash into a tree.”
We emailed the bitter biker at his listed email for the details, expecting a tale of rage and resentment. B0th3r3d describes a bike as a mother would her baby―claiming he’d “lovingly” taken his ride into Bike Pirates just the day before for a tune-up and was “so happy riding it to work and back”―and then, disaster. “Some prick smashed the lock and stole it, who knows why? It wasn’t worth anything to them. Yeah, I’m sad about it, some people are pricks.”
