Abandoned Part 14

Police report. Murder of Raleigh cycle, Bridge Street, Cardiff.

The victim John Doe, red paint, approximately 24lbs, found brutally murdered in Bridge St Cardiff sometime prior to discovery on the 19th April 2013 at 9.10am. Cause of death; evisceration by allen key, removal of wheels , steerer, handlebars and seatpost. Death appears to be slow and painful, conducted over a period of time, most probably whilst the victim was conscious. An intensive search of the scene has not revealed clues to potential suspects and a request for eyewitnesses has thus far proved unsuccessful. 

This poor bike has truly been through the mill. If possible, whilst leaving your bike for extended periods, take care to lock it in a well lit and busy area. Nobody wants to return to a scene like this.

If you come back to your bike to find it decimated by detritivores, please think about passing any unwanted bits to local social enterprises such as The Cardiff Cycle workshopThe Bristol Bike Project,  ReCycling (London) or The Bike Station (Glasgow). This is part of an ongoing series to highlight cycle security, abandoned and vandalised bikes.
