Victoria, BC – Officers are asking for your help as we work with the wider Greater Victoria Community to find a bike stolen from a nurse while she was administering COVID-19 vaccines.
The victim reported that her bicycle was stolen yesterday while she was working in the 700-block of Douglas Street at the Victoria Conference Centre administering COVID-19 vaccines.
Her bicycle is described as a grey Trek road bike with distinctive yellow stripes. Her bike has new bar tape, an adjustable MEC stem, an anatomy-friendly padded seat and flip-flop pedals with a clip-in one side and flat on the other side. The bike has 700x23c tires with Presta valves and one with a brass Schrader adapter, disc brakes, as well as fenders, a water bottle cage, and disc brakes. She reports that her brakes squeak, which is unusual for disc brakes.
