As many know I cycle everywhere. It is so much easier, no parking problems and waiting around (to my shame I jump red lights). I cycled to a Santander branch. I locked my lovely £800 red Brompton bicycle. As I came out of Santander I was shocked to see my Brompton had gone and the lock was left intact
It was parked about 5 minutes’ walk from a Police Station. I went straight to the Police. To my surprise they were really helpful. They immediately put a call out for a red folding Brompton.
I do not think I will get my Brompton back. I am now bike less. I will walk into Halfords tomorrow and buy one of those £150 bikes. I need a bicycle. I do not like driving. Just waiting in traffic is such a waste of time. With cycling I get to my destination and I also get exercise.
Okay I was careless. I was in such a rush that I did not lock the Brompton properly. I put the lock on the seat post making it very easy to remove the bike from the lock, without breaking the it.
