SEATTLE, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- The mayor of Seattle, famous for his support of cycling, said someone stole his wife's bicycle after he borrowed it to ride to work.

Mayor Mike McGinn said the bicycle was stolen Wednesday after he rode it to work and his wife "is pissed" about the incident, Seattlepi.com reported Thursday.

"I know I've been encouraging people to ride bikes more," McGinn posted to his Twitter account Wednesday night. "but I didn't mean u could 'borrow' my wife's bike w/o asking."

A police spokesman did not have any further details on the theft, Seattlepi said.

Meanwhile the hosts of the "Kent and Alan Show" on KPLZ-FM, Seattle, said they will provide a new bike for the mayor provided he agrees to donate it to a needy child if the stolen bike is recovered. The radio show has donated $250,000 worth of bikes to children in the past 20 years.
