I do consider myself a cyclist now (which is fortunate given I depart for the C2C tomorrow) so I do feel qualified to mention Cameron and his blessed bike.
C. has had two stolen over the past couple of years. I am lucky enough not to have suffered the same fate.
The Sunday Mirror recovered Cameron's bike and reunited it with its rightful owner.
There are, I believe, two lessons to be learned here:
1. you need to exercise a certain amount of common sense when deciding where to secure your bike (twat)
2. it still helps to be Somebody (even if that it is the leader of the Tories) than a Nobody (my bike would surely not be returned).
