More bike thefts in Cork

richardsbikeUnfortunately reports of these are becoming almost regular.

Another bike has been robbed from the owner’s home in Cork.  This time it was a CTC member, Richard, based in Ballygarvan.  The bike was robbed from his garden shed.  He’s put an ad up on Donedeal in the hope that any potential buyers who see it would be wary and report it.  More details can be found on the ad.

Assuming he doesn’t get it back, Richard will be looking for a replacement bike around size 56.  As a club, the least we can do is keep an ear out for anything suitable floating about on the second hand market….that doesn’t look dodgy!

If you keep your bike outside the house, make sure it’s secured as best you can.  Also you should take photos and keep a record of make, model, components, serial number, distinguishing features to aid retrieval should a theft occur.
