Community bike shop, Druid Cycles in Bermondsey, is appealing for people to be on the lookout for a large number of distinctive bikes stolen from its workshop on 25 March 2011.

You can see the bikes on their website.

The thieves stole 15 men's bicycles, one tandem and a tricycle with a sound system, as well as all the shop's tools and new parts.

Many of the stolen bikes are distinctive, being airbrushed or hand-painted.

Several also have refurbished Druid Cycles leather saddle, bar tape and grips, and wooden bar ends (though these could be removed).

Owner of the shop Thor, said "We're relying on tool donations from other cycle shops and cyclists so we don't go out of business."

Anyone who thinks they recognise one of the bikes should call the police on 999, as well as contacting Druid Cycles directly on 07551 016380 or via email.
