Bike security:


Nobody wants to be a victim of bike theft. Here’s how to protect yourself and your bike:

On site

  • Always use a high quality lock and a cable wire to thread through your tyres.

  • Park your bike in a visible spot and attach it to something that is immovable.

  • Remove any accessories from your bike that would be easy to steal.

  • If in doubt, two locks are better than one!

At home

  • Lock your bike securely at home, too, and remember to cover the bike up so it’s kept out of sight.

  • Register your bike at Bike Register.
