Robbed of my bike today
Hi fellow LCC-ers - this afternoon at 3:30 I was cycling west along Akerman Road, just after its junction with Patmos. I had just helped out at a local school, training teachers. Two men stepped into the road and threatened me with a crowbar, taking my bike and other possessions. Thankfully, they didn't hit me. I've reported it to the police.
They'd caught my eye because of the strange way one of them drifted slowly into the middle of my lane, blocking it. I handed everything over without a struggle when he threatened me.
Please get in touch if you see or hear of my bike - a silver blue Dawes Horizon touring bike with dropped handlebars. Unusually, it's got black electrical tape wrapped around half of the frame, and fluorescent yellow tape stuck in the front wheel's spokes. There were two yellow Ortlieb panniers with it. The frame's serial number is: F110102145 , 58cm frame size.
I hope no-one else gets threatened this way (or worse).
