Thieves Target Valuable Bikes

Business owner wants help tracking down thieves

Bikes valued at more than £50,000 have been stolen from a small business in the Afan Valley.

The Afan Valley Bike Shed, which operates from Afan Argoed Forest Park in Port Talbot, was broken into early yesterday morning (July 8).

Ben Threlfall, who owns the business, described the break-in as 'sad and distressing'.


He said: "Just before midnight last night the visitor centre was broken into and 10 of our high end bikes have been stolen.

"We had 7 oranges,1 Cannondale Jekyll, and my own personal transition smuggler and Santa Cruz chameleon and a pair of new fox 36 forks in orange.

"Things like can shut down small independent bike shops."
