Victoria, BC- Officers are asking for the your assistance as we work to locate a stolen bike belonging to Tour de Rock alumnus Erin Glazier.
Erin Glazier rode alongside other members of media and police officers in the 2012 Tour de Rock in an effort to raise funds to send children with cancer to Camp Goodtimes. The Tour de Rock is a yearly partnership between media and police officers and sees riders ride the Vancouver Island as they raise funds.
Each year, the bikes the riders use are temporarily donated by Trek bikes. Riders have the option to purchase their bikes once their Tour is complete. The loss of the bike isn’t only a financial hit for the local triathlete. It comes with irreplaceable memories of her time on the Tour de Rock.
The bike was stolen from the 500-block of Fisgard Street in the early morning hours of August 1st, 2018. Nearby surveillance video caught a suspect on the bike. The suspect is described as a male standing approximately five feet, 10 inches tall, with a medium build and shaggy, dark brown hair. He was wearing a scarf, a long sleeve grey sweater and dark pants.
Still images from that video are below.
The bike is distinctive. It is a 2012 Trek Madone, black with silver. It has “EGLAZIER” printed along the top tube and a 15th anniversary sticker. It also has polka-dot bar tape on aero bars, which resemble bull horns on the front.
Images of the bike are below.
