Thieves are believed to have struck sometime between 9.30pm on Thursday, February 28, and 7.30am on Friday, March 1.
Three mountain bikes, which were left secured and are worth a considerable amount of money, were taken from the roof of a vehicle that was parked at the back of the Gwesty Gorsaf.
Sorry to hear of the theft and hope they get them back – but as said above leaving them out overnight locked on the roof of a car? 😯Posted 4 years ago

Car roof. Overnight. Ffestiniog (one of the shittest little places I’ve had bad fortune to visit).
Personally not at all, unfortunatelyPosted 4 years ago
Hence why mine spent the next night safely nestled in the bath in my hotel room 😉
I’d be even more surprised if they where ever seen again but perhaps if the collective MTb community could keep an eye out and share the details instead of criticising and stating the obvious there is a small chance of recovering something from the situationcarlosgMember
After some of the tales I’ve heard about the quaint village of Blaneau Ffestiniog and it’s ‘friendly’ locals I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a local job. The bikes will be broken up and shifted on for a fraction of their true value.Posted 4 years ago
It’s a crap but harsh learning experience for the bikes owners , personally my bike comes with me wherever I stop I wouldn’t even leave it locked inside the car!
The police really are concerned about bad press on this incident as Blaenau is going through a regeneration project. There’s a new xc loop being built at the mo plus the uplift days which are excellent value for money. It’s a shame this has put a black mark on it somewhat as the terrain around those parts is perfect for mtb.Posted 4 years agoJohnny PanicSubscriber
^ Obviously never been to Neath then.
Please ignore the Blaneau bashing and the criticism for leaving the bikes on the car roof and instead focus on keeping an eye out for the bikes.
Have a look at the pics, read the descriptions and you just never know, maybe they’ll turn up.Posted 4 years ago
