This is Betty and Brian our beloved Brompton cycles which Mike and I use almost every day to get to and from work and around London.
Yesterday on my way home from work I stopped at the supermarket to pick up some goodies for supper and 10 minutes later I came out and my bike was gone. Someone had stolen it even though I had used a bike lock to secure it to the bike rack.
I am devastated on several counts. 1. We have had the bikes for just over 4 years and they have been on holiday with us. 2. They are used to get to and from and around London. 3. We use them every day to take us to work and back. 4. And last but not least they are like a cherished member of our family.
I have filed my police report, and contacted the insurance company, but I don't expect any good news. We have been searching the internet for GPS devices now just in case the same should happen again, however I will be very reluctant to leave my bike locked up outside any shops going forward.
Now to find a much needed replacement.
I hope you are having a better day than me. Catch you later.........
