Crime Prevention Advice
  • Get an approved bike lock. Look for the Sold Secure logo on approved locks.
  • Always lock your bike at home, even when it is in your garage.
  • When out and about, lock your bike up in a secure location at a bike rack or lamp post
  • Always lock your bike even if you’re only leaving it for a couple of minutes.
  • Make the locked bike difficult to manoeuvre. Keep any gaps between the lock and bike frame small.
  • If you have quick release wheels, lock them up too or take them with you.
  • Remove lights from the bike and take them with you.
  • Identify and register your bike with scheme  Immobilise.
  • Consider etching your postcode on to your bike frame.
  • It is thought that thieves actively use ride recording Apps (such as Strava, Endomondo, “Map my ride”) to identify where high value bikes may be kept. This primarily occurs when individuals post their recorded rides to the public domain. It is believed they head over to the ride start/finish and possibly target likely garages/sheds/etc in the vicinity until they find what they want.
