Adam Jones, 51, was left in a “state of disbelief, anger and despair” after the theft of five top-of-the-range bikes from his garage on Tuesday night.
The raiders stole a number of high performance bikes, including a Specialized Tarmac, a Dolan Scala time trial bike, a Bianchi Oltre XR2 and Infinito CV, plus a BMC Roadmachine.
Hmmm, it’s almost like they knew where to go?
While talking to one bike shop after the theft, the owner explained that a cycling app called Strava, which is used to record cycling routes and times, could be partly to blame.
The owner claimed thieves could use the app to find those with the fastest times, which means they have the fastest bikes, and then use the route feature to look at where they live.
The comments don’t seem to believe this. But is it possible? Do we put too much blind faith in these apps that track our every move?
