Bike thefts and what you can do about it!

By | 04/02/2013

The bike thieves are at it again. Our Welfare officer, Peter Bennett, was the subject of some determined thievery over the weekend.

Here is his report I had my shed broken into over the weekend. They cut roof out & took 5 bikes
1 Toms blue ribble road bike – with mudguards 2. A Donohue framed fixed wheel bike with race blade mudguards 3. A blue fixed wheel frame & wheels 4. A white female trek road bike (small size) 5. A gold coloured Giant flat barred bike

The shed has no windows in so it was clearly a determined effort, especially as bikes were locked together with 2 separate chains”

On the plus side, as a result of bike thefts, the Metropolitam Police are carrying out a free bike marking servive. They will be at the Redbridge Cycling Centre (Hog Hill) on Saturday 16th February and Saturday 9th March. Click HERE for full details of the marking scheme.
