Did you ever have your bike stolen if so what happened?

The trainees could do it for practice; no need for qualified people, or nurses, anethsetists or anything like that
I think it would be possible to recruit and provide some rudimentary training to volunteers.

The main reason I think is the lack of solution to the problem: there is no punishment when you catch the thief and no deterrent to make them think again. I have always been in favour of: cut one finger off for each theft. This would be a good deterrent and a thief would only have ten chances. It may sound harsh but society has gone far too soft nowadays and needs to toughen up a bit and care more about victims than law breakers.
unfortunately if they had 9 other offences to be taken in consideration we would all be left looking after them

Is it because I lied when I was 17?

A little more about yourself? What sort of cycling are you planning? are you a vegan? do you like guinea pigs?
.........and why? :whistle:

Was working away from home, bike parked in bike shed at work, locked to Sheffield stand. Got a call on site that the bike shed had been broken into...you can guess the rest. Thieving scum climbed over 6ft wall/metal fence smashed door in & actually un-bolted the stands from the floor. Bike stands now have deadbolts. My bike was one of three nicked, they just took the stand, bike & lock. C***s:cursing:
 
Many many years ago I had mine nicked from out side of the pub that Loughborough section of the CTC where we had are club room.Next day I had a call from the police to say it was at another pub and I could collect it from there

Cops reckoned some scrout had used it to beat closing time which at that time was 10 PM

I had one nicked from outside work. I was getting ready to go home when I heard a loud thumping noise from outside. When I went to get my bike someone had smashed the head of the lock off with a lump hammer. If I had been 5 minutes quicker I'd have caught them in the act. My bike was the only decent one in the bike rack, so it was the only one stolen. Since then I've ridden an old bso to work, which never gets cleaned but does get maintained. It looks like a smackheads bike but at least it's unlikely to be stolen.

A certain cchat member reckons his bike was stolen by the police.
(told me on a ride, not on here)
Sounds incredible but if he tells you the tale it could seem that it might be true.
