According to the British Crime Survey over two thirds of all cycle thefts in the UK are from peoples homes. Despite this there has been little research into the circumstances surrounding these thefts.
Have you, or someone you know had a bicycle stolen or the components of a bicycle stolen from the home? Do you store a bicycle in your home? if the answer to either of these questions is ‘yes’ then we want to hear from you.
Your feedback to this short survey will contribute to important research that Bikeoff and the Design Against Crime Research Centre are carrying out on behalf of the Design Council into the issues surrounding bicycle theft from the home.
The responses you give will be used to help designers create products that may help cyclists store their bikes more securely and conveniently. We hope the end result will be a reduction in residential bicycle theft. By completing this survey you will be entered into a prize draw for £100 of vouchers.

The survey will run over the Christmas period, between Monday 20th December 2010 and Monday 3rd January 2011.
