Bicycling Seattle mayor has bike stolen

SEATTLE (AP) - February 25, 2011

Seattlepi.com says Mayor Mike McGinn sent a message on Twitter late Wednesday about Peggy Lynch's wheels.

He says in a tweet: "I know I've been encouraging people to ride bikes more, but I didn't mean u could `borrow' my wife's bike w/o asking."

McGinn, a former Sierra Club leader, frequently commutes by bike and often rides to events and meetings. He's a strong advocate of making Seattle more friendly to cycles and pedestrians.

McGinn's spokesman says the mayor borrowed his wife's bike because he recently donated his own to a charity. It was taken from a city garage.
