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
  • 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.
