By: DanielBike Thefts! Be careful.
In the last 2 months there have been several bike thefts in Stevenage with bikes being taken from peoples back gardens and sheds in the early hours of the morning. These criminals seem to be targeting those who have side or back gates and will even go as far as taking the door off a shed to get to the bikes.
We recommend that you keep your bikes locked up securely on your property. If you have a side or back gate make sure they are bolted and padlocked and if you have an outside storeroom or shed, make sure this is locked as well.
If you leave your bike outside, It is recommended that you lock your bike to something that is hard to move and if you have more than one bike outside, lock them together as that will make it harder for them to be stolen.
You can read up more on Cycle Safety and Security by visiting the Herts Police website
The following leaflet
on Cycle Safety also has a section you can print off and fill in details about your bike and attach a picture so in case it is ever stolen you can present the information to the police so they can help to find your bike.
