Always secure your bike to a stand if available. Otherwise lock it to a lamppost or railing. Secure your bike using a good quality cycle lock. Take with you smaller parts and accessories that can be removed without tools, for example lights, pumps, panniers and quick release saddles, or fit security fasteners on items such as wheels, headsets and seat posts. Marking your bike with your postcode and house number can be a deterrent to thieves and assists the police with identifying recovered property. Keep a note of your bike’s frame number as this will aid identification should the cycle be recovered by the police. Store a photo of your bike in a safe place as this will help the police to recover your property if it is stolen.

You can register your bike at www.immobilise.com.
