Cycles are a popular target for thieves because they can so easily be stolen and sold on.
To improve the chances of recovering your bike if it is stolen, follow these tips:
SNAP IT – Take a photo of your bike and any identifiable parts. It is also a good idea to have a photo of you with your bike.
FLIP IT – Turn your bike upside down, over 90% of bikes have a frame or serial number under the crank near the pedals.
SAVE IT – Make a record of your serial number. Write it down or take a photograph of it and keep it in a safe place.
MARK IT – Use a third party marking company like Bike Register, which adds the bike to a National Cycle Database.
