Charlie Kelly is a good friend of Singletrack. He occasionally visits our little valley, to test our beer and ride bikes. Here is a link to what happened last time….
Gowaan Gal Martha Gill has just posted on Instagram that she’s had two bikes stolen from her van in Sheffield tonight. Thieves, reported to be on mopeds, have taken her Marin Alcatraz dirt jump bike plus her Marin Alpine Trail Carbon. The theft looks to have taken place around 7pm on 23rd February.
As we’ve seen recently, bikes can be sold off via social media within hours of being stolen. If you see these bikes being advertised, contact the police on 101.
It’s easily done – you pop into the supermarket for some milk on your way home, and leave your bike in the car. You’ll only be a minute. But remember, insurers won’t always cover theft from a car – read the small print and make sure you know what measures you need to take to be covered if the worst does happen.
Keep your eyes peeled for Martha’s bikes, and check out our guides to locks and security. Remember Singletrack Members can get a discount on bike insurance with Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance. Hopefully that doesn’t come in handy.
