Bike theft

The back wheel's gone from this bike, which has been in this collapsed, forlorn posture for a couple of weeks now, presumably abandoned by its owner. Outside Queens Road station, Walthamstow. I suppose the thief was a fellow cyclist who couldn't be bothered to buy a new back wheel. As for this bike...

It might not be the finest of bikes, but you still shouldn't lock it up with nothing more than a flimsy chain. Luckily Waltham Forest Council has dealt with this danger by removing the cycle stand. (Outside Bhs, the Town Square, Walthamstow)

Meanwhile on Mission Grove E17 and Wood Street E17 the council continues to discourage cyclists from leaving their bikes unattended.
