Bike Theft Prevention

An Garda Síochána is appealing to cyclists to take extra precautions in keeping their bicycles safe by locking them in the most secure way possible.

Crime Prevention Advice:

  • Spend 10% to 20% of the value of your bike on two locks.
  • Lock your bike tightly to an immovable object.
  • Keep the lock off the ground.
  • Take a photo of your bike, note the serial number and email it to yourself so that you have a record of it.
  • Lock your bike indoors or in well-lit areas if possible.
