Philadelphia college student Jimmy Mulholland, who bicycled across the country last year, received many offers of help after his bike was recently stolen at 30th Street Station.
On July 10, Mulholland had locked up his old bike outside of 30th Street Station, where he took a train to Media, Delaware County, to visit his parents overnight. When he returned to get his bike the next day, it was stolen from the rack on the Schuylkill River side of the station. He realizes he probably shouldn't have kept his bike there overnight.
The bike had been his constant companion on his road trip last year when he took a break from Temple University, where he was having difficulties in school.
This past spring semester, Mulholland, who still lives in an apartment near Temple University in North Philadelphia, transferred to the Community College of Philadelphia, where he is studying business administration. He is taking summer classes now.
He plans to start a photography business and hopes to transfer back to Temple to finish his bachelor's degree.
