We’ve teamed up with Burg Wachter to give 4 readers the chance to win a bike security kit, worth over £60 each.

With spring around the corner, the opportunities to give your bike a proper outing are on the up. Unfortunately, with the cycling weather comes a greater need to ensure your bike is safe and secure, in those moments where it’s not being used.

According to UKCrimeStats, from February to March 2017, reports of bike thefts increased by almost 2,000 across the UK and Ireland. Highlighting the need to take extra care this spring.

There are basic measures that can be taken to make sure that your bike stays put.

  1. Always make sure that you lock both wheels and the frame to something with solid foundations.
  2. Park your bike in the light. Find somewhere well lit that is not hidden behind anything.
  3. Register your bike with websites such as Stolen Bike or Bike Register, which in the event of a theft will help you try and track your bike down.
