Fundraiser held for South Korean man whose bike was stolen in Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. —
He came to America to ride his bike across the country, but a South Korean man had his ride ripped off here in Portland.
Min Hyeong Kim came to North America a few weeks ago with the intention of making a two-year trek around the continent. But after successfully pedaling through Canada and Washington, his arrival in the Rose City was plagued by a scourge familiar to many: bike thieves.
After word got out, people Thursday night pitched in to help him get back on his way.
A fundraiser was held on Kim’s behalf at the Apex bar on Southeast Division.
