Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good Morning,

With many people using bicycles to get around for work or fitness, here are some tips for keeping your bicycle secure and to prevent your bicycle from being stolen:-

* LOCK your bike up with a good quality lock, even if you are popping into a shop for a few minutes
* REMOVE detachable accessories such as lights, pumps, panniers and quick release saddles
* LOCK your bike through the wheel of the frame and both wheels or at least the back wheel
* AT HOME keep your bike in a locked shed or garage
* MARK the frame with your postcode in two separate locations

Stay Safe
