August 09, 2004
I left work on Friday looking forward to a nice bike ride home but my Ridgeback (which had been locked up in front of e-lab) had gone. Not even the lock had been left. When I first left it up there I worried about it but haven't given it much thought recently. I suppose it did look a little smarter than some of the others chained up but I chose it because it didn't look too flashy. I think what we need is a lockable store like the ones by Heronbank that only bike users have a key to. It would at least be a stronger defence against bike thieves.
Anyway, it has gone now so now I have an excuse to upgrade! I'm not a serious mountain bike user, mainly roads and trails so have been wondering about a hyrid since I prefer sitting in a more upright position – possibly the Ridgeback Adventure Series . I have also read that the Specialized Crossroads are good too. Can anyone recommend a local bike shop that has a good range and gives good advice?
