Was separated from my yellow bike (lookin for Sheila from SF

Hello, I'm looking for Sheila from S.F. she was kind enough to offer me a ride to S.F. but we got separated while she was waiting in line & I was mooving stuff to her car. I managed to put my yellow bike & a tent in her car before we lost contact, please help :shock:

Could the bike be seperated at 5:30 & L? Do you have a picture of the yellow bike? Because somebody left a yellow cruiser bike behind the van on the corner of 5:30 & L. It showed up sometime on Saturday and was still there when I packed up on Monday afternoon so I loaded it. If you do not have a picture you will need a very detailed description of your yellow bike.

Bikes are not 'officially' moop until Tuesday morning at 12 am. That's when the trucks come around and pick them up. Before that time, any abandoned bikes are to be taken to the bike drop off site or left where they lay. However, if a bike is left in your camp you MUST take it when you pack up. Regardless of when you leave. Thank you for not leaving it. I assume you would have taken any trashy old piece of poop bike rather than leave it. In years past I've had my camp become a sea of dumped bikes. (One or 2 attract more). The Rangers bitched me out for rolling them out of my camp. Really? How the hell was I expected to take them?

This bike thing has been discussed. Leave the bikes.

I think it's less that the bike was moop, and more that the poster was mooped.

I'm picturing him standing by the greeters area with a sign saying "SF". Sheila pulls up, says "OK! GET IN!"

Poster loads his bike, a tent, Exodus pulse happens while he's grabbing his backpack... he turns around, No Sheila!

Eithan!!! This is Robin, but I am the person you refer to as Sheila! I have your bike and your tent in SF! Nipple was pretty spot on with his assessment of the situation and its moopness. I washed your bike and oiled your chain. See your pretty sign on CL: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/mis/5212462663.html

I would love to return your items to you. Much love.
