Beat Bike Theft

As we know, bike theft is a continuing problem and figures show it is only getting worse. According to figures bike theft has become so common that it affects 1 in 5 cyclists. LV= insurance company found that a fifth of bikes are stolen within 6 months of purchase.

These new statistics have shown that bike theft has risen by 7% in the last year, however the true figure could be much larger as many as 30% of these thefts going unreported.

Reports have also uncovered a shocking amount of repeat bike theft victims, as one in 20 have had their bikes stolen three times or more and this has cost victims an average of £220 to replace their bikes.

Research found that the most common place for bike theft is at home, with 30% of bikes being taken from sheds and garages. Make sure your bike is securely locked when you are at home.
