This is the bike week for the youngest superhero of Melbourne, Michael Rogers, to say the least.
Five weeks ago, only the homeless legend – who has become the personality of the trainer – has been jailed for his jail detention – was released from the prison for stealing bicycles.
Now, he is gradually beginning to live around, when thousands of adoring fans donated more than $ 136,000 in charity funds to help him get back on his feet.
Last night, he began seeing some of this money – done through the GoFundMe site, organized by the Melbourne Homeless Personnel (MHA).

Charity cost him $ 500, and with this he decided to buy a new phone. His old man was hurt when he knocked the Bourke Street terrorist Hassan Khalif Shire Ali into a shopping trolley.
After he arranges it, he grabbed the true spaghetti at the marinara and pizza festival in his favorite restaurant La Porchetta.
In response to criticisms of fundraising efforts, Donald Stolzenberg, founder and CEO of MHA, has committed to surrender this money to Mr Rogers in an effort to ensure that he does not play it straight away and not use it.
When he used the money to change his life to the right, Rogers said Daily Mail he plans to donate $ 15,000 to charity and share wealth.
"I want to be a good guy," he said to the publication.
"I'm going to try something to do the right thing, because I just want to get a place to settle with what I like and set it the way I want it."
This is a dramatic tournament for Roger, who lived in the commissioned house of Footscray without power, without television and without the Internet.
When he approached a knife-friendly terrorist on Friday, Rogers said he "just wanted to help and do something for the first time in his life."
He said that he spent years behind the bars to start the theft and after a long history of drug use Age. It is understood that he has a state apartment apartment, but he chooses to be homeless.
Ms Stolzenberg said she knew Roger's criminal and drug history and would work to link her with the services of homeless people and ensure that money is used in a manner that does not endanger them.
"All funds donated to this campaign will be delivered directly to Roger to help him get back," writes the organization's website.
"He is a hero in our eyes, and he can do what he feels best with all the funds he receives. He risked his life on this day for nothing, and you can not pay for it."
Charity has since expressed how blown it is the generosity of everyone and "the spirit of helping our hero" the Trolley man comes back to his feet. "
Despite the fact that he became an Aussie hero for one night, not everyone thinks that Mr Rogers should take part in this last Friday afternoon.
Victorian Police Commissioner Graham Ashton today told 3AW that Roger could have potentially dangerous consequences for action.
"I do not like to criticize people in this situation, he instinctively works on what he is looking at," said Ashton.
"But if the cart came to a police officer and moved him and then that offender stepped over him, we could have a tragic effect.
"I think he is trying to support the police in his own way, so I have not leaked him at the weekend."
Several Rogers GoFundMe offenders have also expressed concern over the plan to give him more than $ 136,000.
"I hate these things that earn one person's money well, go beyond what is necessary, because it always comes at the expense of generations elsewhere to deal with systemic problems that lead to situations when he was in the first place," he said. writes one commentator.
"You do not make homelessness (or the life of this person), putting personally 50,000 dollars."
