Richland Man Pleads for Return of Bicycle, Says “He’s Lost Without it”
A Richland man is hoping for the return of his bike which went missing on Christmas Eve. The bicycle was the necessary means for changing his life.
The ad on the Nextdoor App reads:
Lost without you... My white Cannondale 3.0 series bike was stolen off of the back of my pickup Christmas Eve between the hours of 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. I'm not going to waste my time reporting it to the police as they will do absolutely nothing as those of you who have reported stolen bikes to the police previously can attest to.
Ryan Stockdill reports the loss of his bike is "heart-wrenching and soul crushing." Admitting he's at a low point currently, the bicycle had become his best friend.
Stockdill has lost 35 pounds by riding his bicycle around the area. His health is better as his blood pressure has never been better. Riding his Cannondale bike has improved his energy and stamina, which he never thought he'd ever feel again.
Stockdill isn't quite sure if the bike was taken or possibly fell off the back of his truck. One thing is certain. The bike is gone, and Stockdill wants it back. He NEEDS it back.
He's currently not in a position to offer a reward, due to financial hardship, he does state in his post that he can offer his time and labor.
Obviously, Stockdill cannot replace the bike at this time. He's asking if anyone has seen it to contact him at 509-460-8462.
Cannondale bikes are NOT cheap. I hope the bike is returned soon.
