EAST HARLEM — A $10,000 custom racing bike was stolen during the annual Father’s Day Bike Race at Marcus Garvey Park, police said.

A 38-year-old competitor from Pittsburgh put the bike, made by Giant Bicycles, in her boyfriend’s sedan after her race. Then she returned to the park to watch him compete in his own race about 5:15 p.m. on June 21, according to police.

The Volkswagen sedan was parked near 1901 Madison Ave. When the couple returned, the rear driver’s side window had been smashed. Racing gear like shoes, a suit and helmet were also taken from the car.

According to police, more than $11,000 worth of equipment, including the bike, was stolen.
