Happy New Year

So. Remember my new bike, that I got to replace my old bike that got stolen?

Well, shortly before Christmas, it got stolen.

I was riding it at the time, so it was technically more of a mugging on this occasion. Two youths on a scooter; they forced me over to the side of the road, shouting at me to get off the bike, and when I refused they pushed me off it and took it. My bag was in the topbox, so they got my wallet and mobile, too.

It's all been incredibly annoying, but last week I took delivery of a shiny and gadget-laden 16 plate model, so I can draw a line under it all and look forward to many happy and safe miles.



Me too - thank you! And I'm still nervous when there's another bike behind me, for sure - which is a shame, because in the past I'd just have thought 'hello, fellow biker'.

The police are starting to take bike crime a bit more seriously, but I think someone will be seriously hurt or killed before they manage to stop it or cut it down.
