Getting your bike stolen sucks. For some reason thieves think it’s ok, since it’s just a bike (or they’re just terrible people. Probably both). So rather than just sit down and take it, the latest trend seems to be setting up bike thieves in clever ways and filming the usually comical results. For welovecycling that meant arranging the European Bike Stealing Championships. Set up a bait bike complete with a powder bomb and celebratory band hidden nearby and you wait. Granted, the bikes weren’t actually locked up, but taking a bike that isn’t yours that isn’t locked up is still stealing.
Taking a more punishing route, the team over at TwinzTV are literally reeling in the thieves(warning – lots of NSFW language)…
