Crime-Stoppers asks bike riders to avoid having their wheels stolen



The first 60-degree weather of the year in La Crosse may give seasonal bicycle riders a reason to get their bikes back onto the street.

Sgt. Tom Walsh of the local Crime-Stoppers program says officers locate about 900 to 1000 missing bikes in the city each year, which are often put up for auction.
