Back in the Saddle for Sure!

Finally, after much searching I have a saddle back on me bike. I never knew there was so much feckin work that went into finding a bicycle saddle.  You have to find the right pole that fits into the thing a me bob hole and ensure that you lock it in good, so the robbing bastards can’t steel it again. Then I had to find the right seat to fit me arse. You can have nice cushion one or the racing one, that if you are not careful will saw the bollox off  you if you try cycling over 15k per hour. I went for a nice cushion one.

After hiring my private investigator Paddy MacCatchim to investigate the gang behind steeling me original bike. Good old Paddy produced a special report of bicycle theft in the area. You are not going to believe this, even though I can back up the findings myself with photographic evidence of the increase, as seen below of yet another stolen local bike.

The findings show there has been 100% increase in bicycle theft right along the Canadian border. The key factor in the increase has been laid directly at the feet of Donald Trump. As you know there will be an US presidential election next Tuesday. If Trump gets elected, many US Citizens have said they will leave the US and head North into Canada. You guessed it, the bicycles have all gone over the board to be sold in the US to help these good citizens in their evacuation.

The report cited the top three reasons for the increase in US Citizens believing they must have a bike at the ready for their trip north.

  1. There will be a run in the USA on the petrol (gas) stations and petrol will run out
  2. Canada is full of Dutch and Chinese people and to blend in, having a bike will help
  3. Canada is full of snow which makes travelling by road difficult, getting around will be easier by cycling on the Canadian protected cycle paths.

You wait and see my friends, be prepared for Lance Armstrong and a punch of cyclist heading your way.


My New Bicycle, you are not going to believe this!

So here’s the thing, half the world knows about the saga of the fecker(s) who stole me bicycle a good few weeks ago and the other half of the world who don’t, were caught up with Donald Trump watching and worrying how high the Mexican pole vault and the fosberry flop teams could jump during the Olympics.

Well, I sitting in the Library working on the edits for the next book in the series The Adventures of Doc Higgins, ‘Time Beyond Here’.  I’m working on the piece where back in 1530’s the Archbishop of Canterbury asks the Doc to say a few words at a funeral and in the Doc’s usual style, he steps up and over the body he says “In the name of the father, the son and into the hole he goes”

Just then, I look out the window and I see me new bicycle (the one Joey had the fundraiser for and shipped all the way to me from Ireland) on the feckin ground. How did that happen I ask me self? It still had my new ‘leave me bike alone lock’ as in the photo.

So, I shout down my computer and got ready to head for home. You are not going to believe this, some feckin bastard(s) stole the feckin saddle off me bicycle, YES the feckin saddle.  I had to cycle home as if my arse was on fire and I was anxious to see what was over the next hill. Not to think what was going to happen if I tried to sit down. I looked like one of the hobes’ on 5 years old kids bike. The only thing I was missing was a baseball cap hanging off the side of me head and me underpants on display.

Where do I go from here, I ask me self?

Me feckin bicycle saddle gone – I could understand if this was in the 1800’s, went one could go out into the wilderness and find a feckin horse to but a saddle on, but come on, its 2016.

My Bicycle Saga – Happy Ending!

I had no alternative except to hire a private investigator (PI), who specialised in the detection of grand theft. It is official, my bicycle has been spotted in both Amsterdam and Beijing. The bad news is, it has been melted down, and it is now parts of some mobile phone. Most likely used by some international sales person to peddle their wares.

Getting the news at this point was no shock. It was greatly reduced by the fact that the benefit concert organised by my pal Joe at the Longford Tennis Club was a great success. Even though, Queen, the Rolling Stones and U2 were unable to perform. I am assured fun was had by all on the night. Many thanks to Elvis, for turning up and putting on a great show since his last appearance in 1977.

Funds raised on the night from the usual ticket sales, the donkey raffle, bar takings and the leprechaun hunt were exceptional. After all the expenses were paid off, a bicycle has been purchased along with a lock and antitheft device. They are now on their way to me, via FedEx (See photos).

Thanks to all those who kept their eyes peeled, sent me photos of sighting, and to Joe for organising the successful benefit concert and couriering me over my new bicycle and antitheft lock.

So great news, I will be saving shoe leather and back in the saddle very soon. Again racing through the morning heavy traffic, whistling as I go and ringing the bear bell for all to hear.

Note to the robbing bastard(s), you may have thought you have got away with it, but the PI, Paddy MacCatchim is on your case.Bicycle trapButchers Bike

My Bicycle Saga! 3


Although several false sightings as per photos taken by those of you who are keeping your eyes peeled. I have it on good authority that my bike may have been stolen as part of an international underworld operation based out of Amsterdam and Beijing. Interpol have been engaged in tracking bicycles that have been stolen for the larger bicycle cities and new bike lanes popping up all over Europe.

This has become a lucrative business with thousands of individuals willing to turn away from the busy motorways and seek cycling as their preferred form of socializing and relaxing drug of choice. This underworld organisation is run by cycleopaths who will stop at nothing to tell to you to “get on your bike”.

As I continue to seek the truth and wear out several pairs of shoes walking the streets in the pursuit of justice. I feel I maybe be fighting a losing battle?
