RideLondon bike thief caught on camera

The Ride London Freecycle wasn't a glorious event for everybody - one unfortunate participant had his gleaming Trek Madone 4.9 stolen from Green Park before he even had a chance to start riding.

However, as luck would have it, the sneaky thief was later caught aboard the bike - with event numbers still attached - by one of Ride London's official event photographers. We've put the picture up here of it being ridden away.
