Man Has Bike Stolen on Trip to Weymouth

London to Paris bicycle

11:20am 18th September 2013

A man who was visiting family in Weymouth at the weekend has had trip ruined by thieves who stole his expensive bike.

The red and white Specialized mountain cycle was fixed to the roof of his car on Connaught Road, in the Wyke area when it was taken.

Dorset Police are asking us to be on the lookout for someone flogging a similar bike on the cheap.

Police Constable James Vincent, of Weymouth police, said: "Following extensive enquiries I am now able to release an image of the missing mountain bike.

"It is very distinctive in appearance, with a red and white frame, white saddle and thin road tyres

"The theft of this bicycle has caused the owner, who was visiting family from Bicester in Oxfordshire at the time, great distress and would be very expensive to replace.

"I am appealing to anyone who may have seen this theft take place or has information about those responsible to get in touch with Dorset Police on 101.
