Check this new blog out – set up to help combat bike theft in London….
Cycle theft is a low risk high reward crime, most people wont bother a thief as they cut a lock, the police will not go out looking for stolen bikes, and you can sell a stolen bike quickly.
We are going to change that. This blog will host a list of stolen bikes, photographs and descriptions of known thieves and sellers of stolen bikes, and ways to protect your bike from theft.
We will also go to places where stolen bikes are sold, to record the activities of thieves, recover bikes, and educate people about cycle theft.
You can help by looking out for any bikes you see on this site. If your bike gets stolen emailing us a detailed description of the bike, its location and a recent photograph at firstname.lastname@example.org and by not buying stolen bikes.
