UPDATE 5th January 2016: Bike recovered. We were delighted to hear that this bike has now been successfully recovered by the local Police and returned to its rightful owner. The bike cam back in perfect condition, thanks all for spreading the word.

There’s are never any good news that comes from stolen bikes but this story is really crappy. A regular customer of ours, an older, local gentleman came in to see us last week. He was not getting around as easy on the bike as he used to and had decided that an electric bike might be the way forward. After a short test ride it was obvious that the electric bike would make life a whole lot easier, opening up greater opportunities, range and independence.

Earlier today our local Police officer came in and informed us that the bike had been stolen, we where gutted to hear this news after witnessing how a bike can improve someone's life then have it taken away.

The  bike in question is a Ridgeback Electron E-bike. Size medium, white. The bike has a rear mounted battery with a central motor, mudguards and built in lights. The bike was taken without its charger so will have a limited range.

Any information on the bike should be passed on to the local Police or Crime stoppers or call 101.
