Bike riders beware

You know many people have bikes and enjoy riding them. All ages, it might be for fun, exercise or transportation and they sure are good for the environment.

So it really grinds my gears when bikes are stolen.

Bike owners, lock them up in the designated areas, chain and locks. Criminals come along and cut the chains and take them.

This has to stop. I know you think it will never happen to you, well you'd be wrong. I have a couple of suggestions to bike owners to save and keep track of their bikes.

When you get your bike, take several pictures of the bike and write down the serial number.

We can stop this if we work together.

Watch our for your neighbour.
