Charaders who brought about miracles by bicycle theft overseas touring but did not give up miracles

There is no bicycle that should be there. Although I do not want to think about traveling overseas by bicycle, tragedy still occurs. If I get stolen, what can I do? No, not acting will not solve anything.

Hello,Takuya Sudo @ circle around the world bicycle @ Charridermanis. I have never stolen my bicycle so far, but I still have to stop my bicycle in an uneasy place, so it's definitely not something else. That is why it is sad that the cyclist traveling abroad reports that the bicycle was stolen. But in South Africa, in Hungary, in Serbia their bicycles returned safely.

Mr. Narita started a bicycle trip from Anchorage in Alaska in May 2012. I crossed North, Central and South America and arrived at Ushuaia in Argentina in January 2014. I returned home from there temporarily and charged it for six months in Japan. I resumed my trip from Istanbul in Turkey in July 2014, crossed Europe, I am entering Africa from Morocco.

On April 22, 2015, a bicycle theft case occurred at the Ceres campsite such as the rest of the breath to Cape Town with Cape of Good Hope. There is no clue to check with Sekiriti, call the police and have the police report created.

After receiving a police report, I thought about finding out as I tried variously anyway. Even if my bicycle was stolen, I knew the story that I was able to find a bicycle by calling local TV stations and SNS, so I decided to move in the rabbit.

During the day, ask the staff of the campground and the cycling shop in the town "If there is something" as information request. Please connect to the Internet at night and ask for information diffusion while searching for bicycles on Facebook. Then, posting the details of the incident on "ACML (Adventure Cycling Mailing List)" that functions as a place for information exchange of overseas bicycle travelers, we will take actions in order to do something. I saw that ACML postMr. JimboSince he introduced his acquaintance in South Africa, the situation goes in an unexpected direction.

Meanwhile, I got a phone call from each radio station to the divider, although I was bad English, I managed to respond to the interview with gut and enthusiasm.

"Mr. Rianan (Riaan Manser)"Is a famous adventurer in South Africa.

The effect of this radio broadcast is tremendous.

And it will be over ten o'clock? The police will contact the owner of the campground. It seems that the information that I saw a man riding on my bicycle arrived at the police.
I was "serious ??" At last it got me half-trusted, but expectations got bigger and bigger.
While getting in touch with me, when I was talking in a shop of Mr. Jacob after going round the town, the telephone rang. It's from the police.
"I found your bicycle."

And speed solution of surprise.

People who made a report that led to the resolution of this case heard the radio, and he seemed to see a culprit who rided a bicycle by accident in the workers of the road construction. From the internal mailing list to Mr. Lian, and going to the radio Now that it has become a great force so far to solve the incident, I was able to feel that the power of the media and the connection of people is really great.

However, the bicycle was disassembled into pieces, so we had to reassemble it.

About "World Study" Chari Travel Diary Meeting many people. Then start again.

From there I went to the site where the bicycle was found next. Because there were a lot of small lost items, there was also a troublesome part if there was still no need to search out for themselves.
The site is a warehouse of a private house in the township. It was a 23 year old young man who stole theft, after stealing my bicycle, ride my bicycle and color the other bicycles that seems to be better, theft. After that I sold my bicycle to a 19-year-old boy. The boy removed my bicycle parts and diverted it to other bicycles. About three bicycles were about to be banished and one bicycle seemed to be lifted up, and there were three other bicycles in the warehouse.
Though it was such a situation, thanks to finding out by himself, I was able to find important fixtures that I can not get in South Africa, such as carrier fittings and handle bag attachments.
In the afternoon, I brought back the parts found and resumed full-scale assembly work. With the cooperation of Jacobs, I was able to finish the assembly safely in the evening!

Despite saying that it was disassembled, Mr. Narita worked at a bicycle store until traveling. With the cooperation of the local cycle shop, the bicycle is able to run again. Only 3 days to theft, discovery, assembly. On April 25th, we will start again for the Cape of Good Hope.

From incident occurrence, settlement in one week.

People are amazing.
The power that is created by connecting people is amazing.

The case of this time, I was made to realize that.

Cycling around the world with a bicycle alone traveling,
Because I pedaled with my own foot and I am moving forward,
It tends to have a thought like being doing amazing things by yourself,
What is running alone is not essential at all.

The real essence of a bicycle trip is that,
It is a connection between a person and a person who met through running.

With the people of "Budapest · Bike · Mafia" who lent my power to discover bicycles.

I successfully regained my bicycle and I am still traveling.

According to the rule of thumb of the journey up to now, anything stolen once will never come back.
While thinking that "I want to regain a bicycle", I also thought that it was impossible.
While proceeding with the search, the plan was planned for cases where it could not be found.
I was going back and forth "Let's stick a little more", "let's give up already".

But I received words of encouragement from a lot of people.
Everyone who said, "I pray for being found."
Indeed, your words pushed me back.
I really appreciate it.

◆ By people
Not only those who introduced me but also in 2012, Japanese who are traveling by bicycle,I was bicycle stolen in ChinaAlso from the report by the local television station, the information was diffused in the Chinese version of Twitter "Miho", there are cases where the information was spread by discovering by the report of the general public who saw it.

People who have stolen are also people who can find it. Every country knows more people in society knows the right thing than people who did bad things. That is why the bicycle has returned to their hands. My heart gets warm with the kindness of the overflowing by local people who knew the theft case. The fact is said to be more strange than the novel, but because the bicycle theft case of acquaintance is an unbelievable development, it will be solved in succession, so this time I introduced it as an article.

It may be because I came back, but there are cases that will not come back. Those who are touring overseas have meticulous attention to the management of bicycles.
