Register your bike!

If you have attended one of the Cycle Safe events listed above, please remember to register your bike using the security code in the pack given to you. Below is a link to a document that will assist you in registering your bike…it will only take a couple of minutes to complete.

Steps to register your bicycle

Find that bike

Find that bike is a site that will send emails to the registered person to advise of any bike that has been put up for sale on Gumtree or Ebay which matches specifics entered by the user.

It also has a section to check for bike serial numbers and to report stolen bikes.

A guide to keeping your bicycle safe

  • Don’t leave your bicycle unlocked – even for a minute!
  • If you have a garage or shed, secure your bicycle in it using a lock and then lock the garage/shed.
  • Lock the frame to something solid and use a sold secure lock. Visit www.soldsecure.com
  • Security code your bicycle. Visit www.immobilise.com
  • Note your bicycle make, model and frame number somewhere safe.

It is recommended that cyclists use two locks of different types, and lock the frame and both wheels to the stand. This will defend the secured bicycle against multiple theft techniques. Please see the diagram below.
