Report an abandoned bicycle

If you believe a bicycle has been abandoned in the borough, you can report this to us.

So that we can deal with your report as quickly as possible, it's important to consider the following information and have it ready to give us:

  • details of the bike including how long it has been at the site and the condition it is in
  • the date and time you saw the bike
  • the location of the bike
  • any evidence you have such as photos or videos

What happens next

If the bicycle appears to be abandoned, we will take reasonable steps to find the owner. If the bike is not claimed, we will pass the case to Gloucester Bike Project who will carry out further enquiries with the police.

If the bike has been stripped down to the frame we will remove it.
