Bladdy Thieves!

Happy to report I interrupted three scumbags today in the process of legging it with my own and two colleagues bikes. Seems me roaring my head off and charging after them was enough for them to cut and run.

Somewhat more perturbed that they'd gained access to a supposedly secure car park to steal said bikes which were completely out of sight from the street, in broad daylight. I wonder if it was planned or simply opportunistic. Also, got my feet cut up a good bit when my clogs slipped off in the chase, which is highly annoying.

Still, with any luck, it's three hoods who'll think twice about snooping in that particular place today.

    Chef shoes. Incredibly useful in a kitchen, becoming instant chocolate teapots outside.

    SPD clogs? I hope you had a very large knife in your hand as you chased them. Not so you could use it, just extra incentive for them not to come back.
    Glad you spotted them before they got the bikes.

    Use better locks. They will be back. Secure cycle parking usually isn't !

    So, these are a thing:

    Why are they so useful in a kitchen? What are the pros? All I can see are cons.

    If you drop a knife it won't go through your foot?

    3 scrotes? Were they tooled up (i.e. carrying bolt cutters)?

    My vote is they'll be back. Sorry.
    Sometimes parts break. Sometimes you crash. Sometimes it’s your fault.
