National Bike Week: Secure Your Property Is Advice

Published: 6/14/2010

With National Bike Week about to begin cyclists are being reminded by the Halifax to make their bikes safe and secure.

Not quite gone in sixty seconds, but every sixty-five seconds a bicycle is stolen in the UK and the average replacement cost is nearly GBP340. With this in mind the Halifax is offering a few suggestions to cyclists on how to make their bike more secure. One of the most obvious ones, though not always done, is to use a secure lock and always use bike parking racks where possible.

Halifax home insurance will cover the value of a bicycle, but it is far better to keep an existing bike than have to face losing it. By using better security techniques cyclists can certainly help make it harder for thieves.
