Help needed to find custom-built racing bike

January 29 2020

Avon and Somerset Police need your help to recover an expensive racing bike which was taken from a property in the Stoke Bishop area.
It was taken during the early hours of Thursday 16 January.
The intruder(s) forced entry to the secure garage in the Ormerod Road area at about 1.30am.
They triggered an alarm which woke the owner but the bike had been taken.
The bike taken is a custom-built lightweight racing cycle – a 3T Exploro XL frame size. It is a black frame with a grey 3T logo on the seat tube, two bottle cages and a tool kit fitted to one of the main tubes.
The bike has an 11-speed Sram gear block, disc brakes, clipless pedals, 3T wheels with orange walled WTB Hiway 47mm tyres, disc brakes, plus 3T handlebars with black bar tape.
Avon and Somerset Police are keen to hear from anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time the incident took place, particularly any vehicles that were spotted in Ormerod Road.
They are urging second-hand and cycle shop owners and members of local cycling clubs to be vigilant and call them if they are offered the bike or see it.
Anyone able to help is asked to contact us, reference 5220011694.
