The doctor reports man folks have offered to loan him a bike, but he's had his 2007 Dahon for 13 years and he likes it back and besides, it's basically held together with duct tape and would be near worthless on the open market. He adds:
The nearby bicycle rack was completely full. The bicycle was folded and U-locked to secure the front wheel against the rear frame, making it awkward and uncomfortable to carry, but there was no fixed structure to lock it to. The thief picked up the entire thing and carried it away.
