I woke up this morning and noticed that my shed had been broken into in the night. To my dismay my almost brand new Trek racing bike was missing. I am gutted! Nothing else was removed from the shed. My wife's bike was in the back garden and this wasn't touched either. So i've clearly been targetted. I'm posting this for two reasons. 1 - to warn fellow Forest Hill residents that your shed is not a safe place to keep anything remotely valuable. 2 - on the off chance that anyone is offered a knockdown bargain Trek racing bike then you'll know its stolen.

Anyway, i'm gutted (did i already say that?) and am now crying into my soup. I was however pleasantly surprised by the police's reaction who have just been and gone. They seemed to take it very seriously and even sent the forensics team round. I doubt if i'll get the bike back but their response has been pretty positive and not at all what i was expecting. Every cloud...
