I wonder if I can ask for your help hunting down the b*st*rds who stole my bikes.
The thieves must have followed me home or tracked me online somehow, maybe strava. The crowbarred out the front of my garage door and took only the 5 bikes and left tools and lots of other stuff including a disc wheel - they were very specific about what they wanted.


The bikes are obviously worth a fair amount of money and 3 have been completely built by me, with all parts sourced directly so some sentimental value in there too.

Both the TT and Wilier are very distinctive so please keep you eyes peeled.

Strata has a function that allows you to hide your address and it will randomly start and stop your rides in a 1km radius.

The side effect is you cannot create any sections when you start a ride from that location. Also you lose any sections 1 km away from your place

The workaround is to start and finish the ride about 1 k away from you house
