Bicycles can be some of the easiest vehicles for thieves and vandals to target. Protect yourself from becoming a victim by following some simple steps:

  • Get a good bike lock
  • Lock your bike to something secure, even if only for a few minutes and avoid isolated places - leave your bike where a potential thief can be seen
  • Lock up removable parts (e.g. wheels) and take light fittings with you
  • Have your bike's frame security-marked or engraved
  • Take a clear colour photograph of your bike and make a written record of its description, including any unique features
  • At home, keep your bike in a secure garage or shed and keep the door locked
