Re: “Four quick tips for beginning Triangle bikers

A thousand times yes re minding your manners on green ways. Slow down and call out well before you think you really need to. The whir of your spokes and the rattling of your frame may sound plenty loud when you're riding, but to the rest of us you're in stealth mode. And that goes double for dogs, who really don't like being startled.

(The vast majority of cyclists on our trail do this, BTW, and I thank them for it every time.)

Thanks,
BCB

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

I have known Christian for the past 10 years, and he has stolen bikes the entire time. To say that he hasn't stolen 100,000 worth of bikes is such a lie. He used to lift them and take long road trips from Raleigh to all over to meet girls off the internet and sell his bikes for 1000s of dollars at a time.

zshoffman, how long ago did you see the peugeot with campy parts? I had a similar bike stolen October 2014.

Indicted with felony larceny and first degree burglary and pled "down" to possession of stolen goods? Nope it doesn't work like that.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

Why is the angle in this article about a thief who feels shunned- rather than a continued warning for folks to stay away from this guy? He can ride his bike anywhere- but Afghanistan might be a good place for him to look into.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

This guy should stop worrying about forgiveness and just be thankful he still has all his teeth.

Interesting write-up. I hope we see more local heroes and villains profiled in the future.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

An excellent article; a fascinating character study. This dude is gifted in so many ways -- smart, athletic, handsome, charming -- but lacks a conscience. The community is wise to ostracize him; he will not change.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

"I feel like the most hated person in Raleigh," - Screw your feelings. You alienated yourself through criminal behavior and people are to make you feel welcome. That's what's wrong with society today. No personal accountability or morality. It's time to hold individuals responsible, regardless of anyone's feelings. Disgusted. Could have been bringing the guy lunch to scope it his bikes.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

It seems pretty balanced to me and clearly outlines his guilt and the investigation that let to his conviction. Outside of him saying, "It wasn't me," I don't see the article taking much of a position besides the presentation of facts which seem to speak for themselves.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

Sure, thisaft, this article almost paints him out to be misunderstood. Why are they giving him a platform to plea his innocence when it's the biking communities right to connect the dot and not associate with him. Not to mention he beats women. Bye.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

I would love to know more about this flea market. Because the best I've ever seen at any flea market in Raleigh are some janky Magnas that come with a free helmet, or perhaps an 80s Peugeot with some rusted out campy parts and dry rot tires...this must be the Holy Grail!

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

The guy apparently knows all the right flea markets and pawn shops....yep that's it. If he was truly "keeping an eye out for it", he would have told the proper owner as I'm sure they posted pics to the community sites. I remember having my bike stolen in Miami, a Christmas gift that lasted two days.....it sucks. Then to say people turned their backs on you.... You turned your back on them.... what a flake.

Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

@cjwatson Can you expound on that opinion? What part seems to be a joke? Why do you categorize the article as a POS? Just curious.

This is a joke, right? I almost thought Grayson Currin wrote this POS article.

Re: “Biking the Triangle: Where & When

Good list, but needs updating; Benelux has since relocated to Cameron Village on Oberlin Road. Luna Chix, a women's only cycling group, also meets on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6:00 and they alternate between Forest View Elementary and Mapleview Farms. Finally, I agree that CBC deserves a mention--great group!
