Bike security
For the best security use TWO secure-rated locks for maximum security
Lock both wheels and the frame
Remove all your bike accessories every time you leave it unattended
Two types of lock (chain/cable and D-lock) are harder to break
Always lock the frame to a solid object such as a bike stand
Don't let your lock lie on or near the ground as it can be smashed
Don't leave space inside a D-lock where tools can be inserted


When ever possible do not leave bikes on show if you have to put it around the back of your house or in the shed keep it out of sight?

A recent survey found that over half of all bicycle
Thefts take place on the owner's property.

Leaving your bicycle unattended even for a minute can mean it is gone when you return.

Lock it or lose it
