Video: A bicycle locked to a parking sign in downtown Northfield gets forcibly removed

See the discussion thread attached to this Facebook post (viewable by anyone).

Upate, Noon: I contacted Northfield City Hall and got a prompt reply from City Administrator Nick Haggenmiller who wrote:

“I’m told our CSO [Community Service Officer] responded to a complaint noting the bike had been located there all winter. About a week ago, he put a sign on requesting the bike to be moved within 48 hours. Today as you well documented the bike was removed and is being held at the police station if/when its owner steps forward to claim it.”

Update 4pm: MPR’s NewsCut blog featured the video.

Rotary’s cogwheel logo has nothing to do with bicycling. However…

Rotary International and the Northfield Rotary Club‘s logo is a cogwheel (some background info here.) Northfield area bikers like me see more in it than that, especially when I ride across the Peggy Prowe Pedestrian Bridge to the Sechler Park Mountain Bike Trail, opened recently by CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails) where I’m a board member. Thank you, Northfield Rotary, for all you do for bicycling in the area.

A slightly different Locally Grown Northfield is emerging this spring

Grandpa Griff WigleyLoGro has mostly been dormant since early 2013 as I’ve focused on other things, mainly my blogging at Mountain Bike Geezer and CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails).

But it’s back, with a slightly different focus.

I’ll continue to feature my photography of people, scenes, and events around Northfield. I’ll probably add more videos.

But I won’t be featuring my Northfield-related opinions related to local government (City, School District, County) as my consulting work (here and here) makes that a conflict of interest. I probably will shine a neutral light on current issues as a moderator of live web conferences with community leaders.  And I’m open to having opinionated guess bloggers.

So I’ll be experimenting. Contact me if you’ve got ideas, feedback, or an interest in contributing an issue-related guest blog post.
