Bike Crime
The insurance company, Liverpool Victoria (LV), have recently undertaken a nationwide survey regarding bicycle crime.  The survey indicates that approximately 114,000 bicycles are stolen each year in the U.K., with more than half the thefts taking place within the first year of the bike’s purchase, while one in five bicycles are stolen within 6 month of purchase.  MOST of the thefts take place outside owner’s homes.  The survey also indicates that nearly a third of the thefts go unreported to the police

The Metropolitan Police strongly recommend that owners safeguard their bicycles against theft at all times, using a strong lock and attaching the locked bicycle to a solid object like a tree, post, wall or fence.  The Metropolitan Police also recommend that bike owners register their bicycles on the police’s own website,  If you are unfortunate enough to have your own bike stolen, you stand a far better chance of being reunited with it should it be located.
