- Bike theft Holmbury St Mary
Correct. Sadly not the first bike theft from the pubs in Holmbury St Mary or Peaslake. It looks so scenic but there are so many people out biking there that it’s a target for scum. Probably with a van to make a clean get away. I always use a very big chain if I’m leaving my bikes on the carrier.Posted 4 years ago
One of these can easily remove the feet of Thule bars from the top of the car very quickly. It wouldn’t leave a pretty sight but it would be very quick to lever-off..
Then once in the van and back at home I could easily remove any padlocks/chains.
Even at motorways services etc etc are bikes not safe left alone.
People regularly have their caravans lifted at services whilst they stop for a pee 😯Posted 4 years agorewskiMember
I was at some lights next to two blokes in a van, one wound down his window and said nice bikes, looking up at the two AM full sussers on top of the car, they then followed us from a distance for an hour or so until we lost them, maybe they were just seeing where we were riding, I think not though.Posted 4 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
I went for pint in the Royal Oak last year after a day’s course and felt uncomfortable about leaving bike on the saris rack even though we were sitting outside, Shame that we feel like this. But I can’t see the point in chaining bikes to racks. The real thief will not be deterred, just more likely to do more damage to your car when forcing the bike off the rack. I even worry these days that my saris might disappear while I am out riding. 🙁Posted 4 years ago
