Have you seen my stolen bicycle?

It's horrible when theft hits you. I became a victim over the weekend, when thieves entered the grounds of my home and stole my newish bicycle. As well as losing my bicycle, I also feel a little violated, as experienced by many victims of theft.

My bicycle is a distinctive Pendleton Somerby in a lovely pale blue. It's sold exclusively by Halfords, so it's not that common. I would be so grateful if you could keep your eyes open for this bicycle. Please report any information to Rathmines Garda Station (information below).

  • Cruiser-style bicycle
  • Pale blue frame
  • Distinctive white tyres
  • Brown leather saddle and brown leather handlebar  
  • 7 speed Shimano gears 
  • When stolen, front tyre was punctured 
  • Basket holder fitted to handlebars 
  • Front and rear LED lights 
  • Some identifying scratches 

Please report any information to Rathmines Garda Station at (01) 6666 700



  1. Grrrrrrr....I hate this! Someone stole my bike in Zurich when I lived there and I am still mad over it! I had a very cool willow shopping basket and nifty little toddler seat as well on it....the whole package! Hope it is found Joanne. If I make it up to Dublin over the next few weeks I will keep my eyes peeled for it. xx

  2. Móna - as always, you are a saint! Thanks for the good wishes

  3. It was such a nice bicyle! I'll keep my eyes open!

  4. I can only say I'm so sorry, it was a beautiful bicycle. If I see it I will let you know
