Don’t give thieves an easy ride on your bike!

Stop your bike from getting stolen

Seems pretty simple advice to follow but thousands of bikes are stolen every year. Follow these guide lines to make sure your bike isn’t one of them.

The North Vancouver RCMP Property Crime Strike Force has been actively investigating recent bike thefts in North Vancouver. Investigators have noticed some commonality with these files and are passing on advice to the public to help reduce the chances of their valuable asset being stolen.

  • Never leave your bike unlocked or unattended, even for “just a minute”. It only takes seconds to steal an unsecured bike. Unlocked bikes are irresistible to opportunistic thieves.
  • Never lock your bike by the front wheel only. It will be too easy to steal. Always lock your bike with two quality locks; use a U-lock and a cable lock. By using more than one style of lock, it will take thieves two types of tools and twice as much time to steal your bike.
  • If possible, remove the seat of your bike. Without a bike seat, thieves are less likely to make a quick escape and ride away on your bike.

Police continue to receive complaints of bicycles being stolen from the owner’s home, commented Cpl. Richard De Jong, of the North Vancouver RCMP. Always lock your bike at home even when it is in your garage, storage unit or apartment. Be vigilant when returning from a ride. Keeping your bike out of view of prying eyes will also provide a deterrent to becoming a victim.

Go to the bc.rcmp.ca website to learn more on how to protect yourself against bike thefts.
