Bike Bennett Made Famous Auctions For $10K

The Seattle Police Department bike that Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett made famous for his joy ride around CenturyLink Field following Seattle's NFC Championship win over the Green Bay Packers was auctioned off for charity this past Saturday night.

The bike went for $10,000 and half of the funds will go toward Bennett's charity work fighting childhood obesity, while the other half will go toward SPD's efforts against domestic violence and child exploitation.

SPD Sergeant Tom Bailey, whose bike Bennett borrowed, recalled the moment Bennett dubbed as the "best bike ride" he's ever had.

"He was about 10 yards away, I was about 10 yards away, and it was right in the middle, and he got to it before I did," Sergeant Baily said, via "I just said, 'I'm gonna need that back when you're done with it.'"
