Hundreds of bicycles are stolen across Canberra every year. Making sure you lock your bike properly every time helps reduce the likelihood of losing it to a thief. Bike thieves are often opportunistic, if you leave your bike unlocked and unattended, even for a short time, it could be gone in seconds.
Front yards, apartment balconies and car bike racks are common places for bikes to be stolen from when they aren’t locked properly.
