Two bikes were stolen from a shed in Trafford.

Sometime between 11.30pm on Tuesday 18 September 2012 and 7.30am on Wednesday 19 September 2012 a shed in the garden of a house on Blyth Close, Timperley was broken into.

Two bikes were taken and the offenders made off.

One bike is described as being a silver/grey Btwin Rockrider 6.3 with an aluminium frame and had no lights or reflectors. The frame number was BI – 24460777110.

The second is described as being a red Btwin Triban 3 with no reflectors, a black bottle cage and saddle bag.

Police Constable Alfred Gumbs from the Volume Crime Team said: “The owner is a keen cyclist and trains for triathlons so is desperate for his bikes to be returned.

“If anyone recognises the description or has been offered a bike in suspicious circumstances, please contact police.”

Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 0950 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
