Igor Kenk New York Times

Igor, Bike Thefts Make Front Page of The New York Times

It's surprising to see what local headlines make international news. Things like the plane crash at Pearson or a massive propane explosion are obvious candidates. But sometimes the best stories get overlooked and are almost exclusively covered by local media.

That's not the case with Igor Kenk and the recent bike busts. The main feature right now on the home page of the New York Times screams Black Hole for Bikes in a Cyclist-Friendly City. Check out the article which posits, among other things, that Igor just might be the unofficial world champion of bicycle thieves.
