And do you know who took it?

A man has been reunited with his stolen bike by police – but officers are still looking for the thieves.

Lyndon Geear’s racing bike was stolen on Wednesday, May 20 from a bike rack outside the Pavilion Leisure Centre in Bromley at about 6pm.

But he had a record of the serial number – which enabled officers to track the bike down at an address in Kent on Friday.

Inspector Jas Sandhu was delighted to reunite Mr Geear with his bike later that day.

However, no-one has been arrested and police are continuing their inquiries.

Inspector Sandhu said: “The recovery of the bike was only possible because Mr Geear had a record of the serial number on the frame.

“We encourage people to record these details and to property mark their bikes to increase the chances of them being reunited should they be lost or stolen.”

Officers run regular bike marking events, for which you don’t need to make an appointment – just turn up.

The next events are on Saturday, June 20 in Norman Park between noon and 3pm, and on Saturday, July 4 at the Church Road recreation ground in Biggin Hill between 12.30pm and 4.30pm.
