Actually the Police have a long tradition of making good use of bicycles.

Mountain bikes are in use in many city areas these days.

I know of one or two - more now, but I notice we dont have them in Windermere - I dont suppose it's because of the hills? :lol:
They WOULD make sense when the tourists have the roads blocked - but that happens less and less these days. :oops:

We use 'em Great for (:yikes: (think of our poor nuts) going up and down steps.... :shock: :o


We were trained at great taxpayers's expense to do this ... :shock:

But .. with a bit legal furious pedalling :twisted: - we gets our usually hooded man :twisted: :wink:

Ah.. bike chases... oooh... more thrilling than a car pursuit.... :wink: Indeed pitting your raw skills against the bad guy.... :roll:
