As an example of the mindless violence going on in London, MiCycle, a bike shop run by the lovely couple Matthew and Penny, has been attacked.
This is a small business, that we’ve praised previously on London Cyclist. In-fact when interviewing Matthew and Penny they told me how they wanted to reach out to the youths in the local area and bring them in to the shop.
This video on YouTube shows the attack. Thanks to zzgavin on twitter for sharing.
If you have any other reports of bike shops being attacked then please do share them in the comments or contact me on Twitter
Update: “Bike Shack in Leyton got completely cleaned out last night. Little Independent, lovely staff, always really friendly.” via @imkah
Update: Evans Cycles in Camden seems to have been looted too
