I received this information from a reader, Sonia L, yesterday

"We own an apartment in Almerimar and I am here at present. Today, Sat 26 Oct at approx 2pm my pushbike was stolen from outside the Mercadona. It was locked with another bike to the cycle rack and the cable lock was chopped!! We spoke to the staff, there is no CCTV! Police matter they said!!"

So be warned there is some bike theft going on at the moment.
