Stolen bike, once gifted from Lance Armstrong, returned to Pitkin sheriff

Remember the bike theft that happened to the Pitkin County Sheriff himself? A bike that was a gift from Lance Armstrong?.

KUSA - Remember that one time someone stole a bike from the Pitkin County sheriff, himself?

Sheriff Joe DiSalvo received that bike from Lance Armstrong years ago. Someone took it from his porch in August.

Luckily for the sheriff, a ranger with Pitkin County Open Space has a keen eye and found the yellow bike chained to a tree earlier this month. It has now been returned to the sheriff's house.

There's a good chance it's locked up tonight.

The irony was that a sheriff's bike was stolen was never lost on the DiSalvo. He told Next back when the bike was first taken that it was a god reminder to "lock your sh*t up."
