Here are 5 tips to protect yourself against
bicycle and accessory theft:
1. Always use bicycle cages and racks to lock
your bicycle rather than public fences.
2. Use a high quality U lock rather than a chain
lock, which can be easily cut.
3. Be particularly cautious in September and
October- bicycle thefts are highest this time of
4. If the option is available to you, register you
bicycle with your school or workplace so your
bicycle can be easily returned to you if its lost
or stolen and then found.
5. Buy the LockLight! The LockLight allows
you to leave you bicycle light on you bike
without fear of theft. No longer will you have
to take your bicycle light with you everywhere
you go, with the risk of losing it. Just leave it
on the handlebars or your locked bike and walk
away with peace of mind.
