He posted a sign near several bike parks and tweeted an apology. He says he had too much to drink and took a bike home over the weekend.

Now sober and remorseful, he’s handed the bike to the police and wants to find the owner.

The canton of Basel-City has a major bike theft problem – more than 2,500 were stolen last year. Most are never recovered.
