Title: Sun ez3 stolen
Post by: cycleman on 14 May, 2021, 09:51:46 pm
From the outside of the local tescos wexham Road slough approximately 5pm .children were seen riding it on the  nearby frithe Road shortly after but there have been no further sightings. The police have been informed but I am not expecting a lot of help from their response so far.
If anyone around slough area sees it please let me and the police know.

I've done the twitter thing (https://twitter.com/kimble4/status/1393314967475134468), for whatever that's worth...

The wife was using it. I was in Windsor at the time. Apparently the tesco security guard at tesco saw the kids playing with it after liz had left it and watched them ride off on it  :o :facepalm:

Really sorry to hear this, I hope you get it back. Was it locked up?
I worked in Slough for many years and I wouldn't even chance leaving my Penny Farthing with two locks on it, seems to be a Mecca for thieving S**T heads
Take care,
Barry.

Bar stewards. Hopefully they will get bored without damaging it. Then someone will recognise and report it in.

Are there any watercourses nearby?  That's where I'd look, kids being the little shits that they are.   Not that a brief immersion in a canal is a problem for a handy mechanic.

While riding along the slough arm of the gu canal looking for the sun. I met a group of cyclists on a ride from Twickenham. One of their number was fixing a puncher .I took the opportunity of telling them about the missing trike and showed them the picture. I rode on and about 10mins one of their number caught me and told me that they had seen the trike being ridden by a boy in a park by the canal. They identified the house the boy went into allowing me to recover the trike. One  stayed behind me to make sure that the trike towed home. I then rode over to Windsor to reunite him with his group. Me and liz are both really grateful to all of the  cycling group who disrupted their ride to help us. I have a terrible memory for names but should they read many heartfelt thanks again  :) .the sun is undamaged from it's little adventure  :)

Excellent news and that group of cyclists deserve a big thank you. For once, a puncture was good! It also sounds like you were able to recover the trike from the house without too much difficulty, which, if true, is also good.

I should think that the cycling group were only too happy to help. It’s great , when on a ride, and something unexpected happens, and it turns out to be a mercy mission, much more entertaining than a usual/ normal ride. You’ll be the talking point of the club, and the incident will be brought up at random, over Tea, for many years to come.

If any group meet Cycleman in any circumstances 'the incident will be brought up at random, over Tea, for many years to come'.
It is a result of his allure.  ;D :thumbsup:

Have the police been informed?
Title: Re: Sun ez3 stolen
Post by: cycleman on 16 May, 2021, 06:15:33 pm
I informed that I had recovered it and some children said they had seen police speaking to the boy in the previous evening. The police had however not shown the slightest interest in looking for it so I don't see any point in pursuing the matter. I am just glad that we have got it back  :)

Lovely to hear that it was recovered. I always think that anybody nicking a bent will seriously struggle to sell it without it sticking out like a sore thumb on fleabay. I'm sure that doesn't stop your average scumbag.

We're all very pleased that it has returned too.  Was there any damage at all?

Having given it a quick spin around a field, I can confirm that it is an excellent machine for a joyride  :D

It wheelspins at the drop of a hat!

Did you have to go to Swindon to recover it?

Very pleased to hear that it's still in one piece.   Roger appears to be losing his touch.   😉
