KHABAROVSK, May 29. /TASS/. Police in the Khabarovsk territory of Russia's Far East have recovered an exclusive $10,000 bicycle stolen from an Austrian traveller, a force spokesman said on Friday.
Markus Peer, 42, is cycling around the world and has already travelled 50,000 kilometres across Europe, North and South America, New Zealand, China, Japan and even North Korea.
But his bike was stolen when the cyclist stopped for a night at a roadside inn on his way from Vladivostok to Lake Baikal.
Police managed to catch the thief, however, a 30-year-old local unemployed man had already disassembled the bicycle.
"The exclusive bike is equipped with expensive gadgets generating electricity and making the ride more comfortable," police said, having put the bike back together again and returning it to the traveller, equipped once more to continue his marathon.
