/ Bike security at the Westway
I did report this at the front desk.
there was another thread about this problem probably little over a month ago
I had my bike stolen from my shed a few minutes up the road from Westway. Last Thursday this was. Apparently it's a hotspot for bicycle thieves. I thought they'd be pretty safe outside the centre though. I guess not
Sorry to hear this, I hope your bike was ok. I will say that as a regular Westway climber I have found the front desk pretty useless and it might be worth contacting the manager.
Not sure if this helps or just shows I needed to be more carful!
Fortunately the bike was not attacked, while the damage to the lock was purely cosmetic. The stainless steel of the bar performed pretty well, and is just slightly polished where grinding attempts were made. So it is a bad idea to economise on a bike lock where you are going to leave it somewhere like the Westway, get the best lock you can.
I am a bit surprised that a dirty, vomit-yellow, oldish bike was attacked, especially in broad daylight.
Is that why there are so many broken bike frames around still locked and attached to something? I always assumed it was malice on the part of frustrated thieves, when they couldn't actually get the bike free, so decided that it they couldn't use it, no-one would.
That pub is very expensive and a bit poncy anyway, pity the North Pole 2 minutes ride away which was excellent has shut down. Must find somewhere like it as an alternative.
