Missing trike is found

Man finds trike, turns it in to Sidney North Saanich RCMP

Sidney resident Margo Massie is hoping someone has seen her trike which was stolen at around noon on Oct. 7.

Only one day after the Peninsula News Review published a story about a local woman’s stolen trike, someone found it and it has been returned to its rightful owner.

Margo Massie came to the PNR office last week, hoping someone had seen the trike that she reported stolen after running across two young males making off with it.

“The RCMP just phoned to say that my trike was returned to them by a man who found it on the bikepath near Mills Road,” Massie wrote in an email to the PNR.

“Thanks so much for printing the article.”

Massie, a Sidney resident, had been hoping it would turn up since she witnessed it being stolen by who she calls two teenage boys at around noon on Oct. 7.

”I was just coming off of the bike path at the north end of James White Boulevard on my (motorized scooter) when I saw two boys coming towards me.”

One was riding her trike, she said, and when she confronted them about it, they took off.

“That’s when I yelled, ‘that’s my trike!’”

Massie said she chased the pair but they were able to outrun her and vanished.

Massie said she had left it unlocked at her home, and regrets that, but said she didn’t expect something like this to happen to it.

Massie, who has MS, bought the trike 20 years ago in Vancouver. Its design allows her to use it for exercise and the seat allows her to rest while riding. Massie is unable to walk due to her illness.
