In recent years, a growing number of commuters have ditched their cars and taken to pedal power as an alternative method to get to work… It’s cheaper, greener and helps keep the rider healthy and fit. The government and other organisations such as Sky have been encouraging millions more to ‘Get on your Bike‘ and through these high profile campaigns we’ve witnessed an increase on the number of cycle lanes and cycle tracks built in order to keep the rider safe as they travel to work.
However one major problem facing cyclists when they arrive at their destination is where can they safely park their bike in the knowledge it will not be stolen. According to the Home Office British Crime Survey, bike crime has steadily risen in the last two years from 477,000 to 533,000, even though, according to Halfords, only 115,147 bike thefts were actually reported to the police.
Here at Crime Prevention Products we know that it takes less than 60 seconds for an opportunistic thief to snatch your bike, that’s why, when it comes to Bicycle Security, we recommend the Bicycle Security Tracking Device which is incorporated into a fully functional, back light that can be tracked via a free worldwide online mapping website.
