Protect your bike from theft

Bike security is always important and with 440,000 bikes stolen last year, which is an increase of 10% from the previous year, there’s nothing to say that your bike won’t be next. Keeping your bike secure at home and away should become second nature, if you don’t want to lose your bike to theft.

How to keep your bike safe when you are out and about:

  • Use a bike rack whenever possible and use two different kinds of locks to secure your bike.
  • Leave your bike in a busy and well lit area.
  • Mark your bike with your postcode on the frame.

How to keep your bike safe at home:

  • Keep your bike locked in a secure shed or garage.
  • Make sure your bike is always locked away when not in use.
  • Never leave your shed or garage door open for passers-by to see the contents.
