Boris Bikes

there seems to be a spate of young boys riding about on Boris bikes.
one was going down my road putting on plastic gloves wearing a hood and a mask.
he couldn't have looked more dodgy
We were wondering just yesterday how many Boris/Santander bikes have been nicked. There are loads of them around south London boroughs being ridden by people who really don't look like they've been 'obtained' legally.

Presumably it's common knowledge how to hack then use them for criminal activity.

OP: Did you report it?
I expect if you've got a dodgy credit card you can hire one and not return it without worrying about losing your deposit.

Personally i think anyone who can cycle a Boris bike over Denmark Hill without stopping for a rest deserves to keep it.

Did you call the police?
This policeman got fed up with a young thief on a boris bike with no helmet (nudged him over with the police van door).
