The owners of a bike shop were forced to temporarily shut their doors after having thousands of pounds of stock stolen earlier this month. 

Bike Logic of Helsby, Cheshire, was broken into around 11.20pm on Sunday Janaury 18th.

In a statement on Facebook, the retailer said: "The shop has been ransacked, over 30 bikes, all the clothing, equipment etc. for this reason the shop will be closed until further notice.

"Brands stolen include Bianchi UK, FOCUS Bikes UK, Orbea and Scott bikes. Any information or any suspicious behaviour seen would be much appreciated as all the cameras, phone lines and alarms where cut before entering the shop."

According to local paper The Chester Chronicle, the goods stolen totalled around £40,000. Owner Ian Carter, who runs the shop with son Lewis Carter, told the paper: “The easy thing would be to cease trading but this would mean the thieves have won over our livelihood and we are not willing to bow down to this type of people. We have a following of customers who deserve a quality outlet for servicing and the messages of support encourage us to carry on.”
