Default Elderly Lion chases down bicycle thief

I thought cycling was faster than on foot?

Need to create an account to read the article. I have the account.
Seems that cyclists are too stupid to steal a car, and far too stupid to
even steal a bicycle.
Shower of ******s.

I didn't need to create an account to read the Herald's website.

I liked the bit where the miscreant was said not to be able to make
progress beyond a set of red traffic lights because there were too many
pedestrians (presumably crossing the road).

That tends to prove your theory: the thief was clever enough to steal
the bike (if cleverness is what's needed) so clearly no cyclist, but on
the other hand, he must have been a member of that group for whom red
traffic lights and pedestrians crossing the road are no obstruction
whatsoever.
