About Bike Theft >The Problem >
The majority of bicycles are stolen when left unattended, ‘parked’ or stored inside or outside the home. In cities such as London and Brighton & Hove the majority of thefts occur away from the home. In other areas of the UK, the highest incidence of bike theft is from houses, sheds and garages. This may be linked to the type of cycle use associated with a geographical location - cities with high cycle commuter numbers experiencing more on street thefts and those with higher leisure cycle use experiencing domestic cycle thefts.
