Attempted bike theft
I cycle to my local station each day, leave the bike there (locked up) and then catch the train up to London. Got back to the local station tonight to find the bike lying at a weird angle and the rear rack + rear wheel bent, bike still locked up though. Then a lady from a house opposite the station comes over and said that she saw a kid this morning trying to nick my bike (and another nearby) unsuccessfully. She phoned the police who said they'd turn up pronto but apparently no sign later on. The lady also said that a local news crew had been at the station filming a piece for the news and that the scrote in question was actually on camera in the station as part of the programme! So if anyone gets Meridian TV then have a butchers at the local news. I've tried to play the Meridian TV player thing on the internet but it's not working.

Anyway, limped home with a rubbing back wheel after disengaging the rear v-brake. It's only a pub/hack bike but it's MY pub/hack bike! Grrrrrr.Posted 7 years ago
