Call yourself a hipster?

Cyclists rescue 5 year old girl

On Thursday afternoon, five-year-old Jocelyn Rojas went missing without a sound from her front yard as authorities believed she was kidnapped by a suspect who lured her with ice cream. Within the next two hours, a search party was formed by police and members of the community. Two of which, 15-year olds Temar Boggs and Chris Garcia, rode their bikes around the neighborhood to look for Jocelyn. Temar, eyes wide open, spotted Jocelyn riding in the passenger’s seat of a reddish-purple sedan with round tail lights. They followed the car for 15 minutes.

“Every time we’d go down the street, he’d turn back around,” Temar told one local news source, “then … we [would] follow him.”
The suspect couldn’t shake the high school freshmen, so at one intersection about a half mile up the road from Boggs and Garcia, the kidnapper let Jocelyn out of the car. Then, he drove off. “He stopped at the end of the hill and let her out,” Tamar recalled, “and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom.”

Boggs held the girl in his arms and walked back to the search party’s rendezvous. Garcia pedaled alongside the two while guiding Boggs’s bike with one of his hands. Tracey Clay, Jocelyn’s grandmother, called the cyclist “our hero” and that there were “just no words to say.”

Tyre-slashing man caught on camera having sex with bicycle

Annoyed at someone interfering with his bike, a Swedish man has caught a bizarre bike fetishist red-handed.
Per Edstrom got fed up that someone kept puncturing his tyres and set up a CCTV camera to try and catch the culprit.
What he got was footage of a hooded man holding a piece of paper, getting intimate with the bike. The miscreant stands over the rear wheel of the bike, punctures the tyre and then masturbates as it deflates.
Police in Osterlund are looking for the velophile and believe there may be a link to a series of crimes in the area in 2007. A 35-year-old man was arrested back then for allegedly slashing the tyres of 20 bikes, before masturbating over their saddles.
Mr Edstrom says he is willing to forgive the man, but just wants him to leave his bike alone.  “I am not scared of him, just irritated over all the punctures I have had to fix,” said Edstrom. “This man is probably completely harmless, bicycles are just his thing.”
The video is frankly a bit ‘ew’ for a family website, although there’s no nudity involved. If you feel you must, you can watch it on YouTube.
Unusual as this story is, it’s not the first instance of human-bicycle sexual relations. Earlier this year, Danish police were seeking a man who repeatedly masturbated on a women’s saddle while her bike was parked at a train station.
And lest we think this is a peculiarly Scandinavian kink, in 2007 a Scottish man was sentenced to three years’ probation after being caught having sex with his own bike.
