Bye-bye bikes.

A quick trip to Sainsburys yesterday to pick up some essentials turned into a nightmare.


Both our bikes were locked to a steel post buried in the concrete and then, within 40 minutes, were stolen. No lock, bikes or witnesses.


Sainsburys have CCTV cameras for that area, so hopefully the bastards will get caught but we don't expect to ever see the bikes again. :(


We tried to report the incident at Islington Police Station but the front counter was unattended.


Some other people had been waiting for more than 30 minutes with no one there to help. We could see staff in the station, behind the scenes, but no one wanted to come out and help any of us.


Do we still wonder why no one respects the police anymore?


Now, where's my Oyster Card...?
