Bike 4 Alz man says his bike was stolen

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-A Bowling Green man who biked thousands of miles across the country to raise money for Alzheimer’s research said his bike was stolen last weekend.

Jack Blair, a student at Western Kentucky University, rode 3,600 miles cross-country on his neon green and black bike this past Summer.

It was all for this year’s Bike4Alz fundraising campaign.

On Saturday Blair learned that the bike he rode had gone missing. He believes it was stolen on Friday night, around the college street area in downtown Bowling Green.

He has since filed a report with the Bowling Green Police Department.

Blair said the bike is a huge loss, but even more of a loss is a sentimental item that was attached to the bike.

“On it I have a little wooden cross that was given to me by my late grandmother who passed away about a month before we left for the trip. I had it taped to my bike the whole way and it was something that I was going to show my kids when I got older, and it was a story to tell for the rest of my life. Now it’s gone,” said Blair.

Blair also said even if he never gets his bike back, he would like the wooden cross from his grandmother returned.
