Demand for motorbikes, scooters and mopeds has shot up

Expect even more bike and scooter thefts.

Since lockdown, bicycles are being stolen at an even higher rate than normal, we’ve had several stolen from our building’s communal bike room, ones which were well secured. Hospital bike sheds are being targeted because key-workers have been cycling more. At the moment anything, in any condition, will sell like hot cakes on the 'Bay, no questions asked.

As people return to work I expect this spate of thefts will extend to powered two-wheelers.

Yup, no surprise on either count to be honest.

Even our building has now sold all it’s spare parking spaces so not surprised at all about the increase in PTWs
