David Gilet, Byron Bay You would have to say that the Byron district has more than its fair share of wankers,...

After 20 years living in the Bay we have moved to Brisbane as our daughter has been offered a fabulous opportunity to attend the Queensland Academy of Creative Industries.

I thought I would take our mischievous mastiff pup for one last bike ride before we headed up. We rode along Alcorn Street toward the bike path and Teddie the mastiff puppy’s ears, loose wrinkly skin and tongue were flapping with pure joy.

We stopped at the first beach path and headed down for a quick dip in the ocean. We were gone for five minutes and came back to the bike chain snapped in two by bolt cutters; who would do such a thing?

It was a large three-wheeler black bike with a white basket, we needed a three-wheeler for such a large hound dog.

Here we are in Brisbane with fabulous bike paths, but now we have to walk. If you see a black three-wheeler bike advertised on Gumtree, E-bay or on the street please let the Byron Bay police know as it is one of about 20 bikes stolen each month.

We would love to hit the bike paths again. Teddie and I miss our wild rides, and we will miss the Bay.
