Bicycle crime

Transport for London has teamed up with the Metropolitan Police and City of London Police to include the registration of bicycles on the Immobilise Register, a register that has demonstrated success in tackling mobile phone crime in the last year.

There are three simple steps to using this free service

  • Step one: register bicycle model, make and frame number at Immobilise.com.
  • Step two: report if lost or stolen, to the police and the register.
  • Step three: reunite, registering and then reporting these details helps the police match the bikes description if found and return it to you.

Transport for London offers four great tips to help you protect your bicycle from theft

  • Make sure the lock you buy is a good one and consider buying two. Expect to pay about 20 per cent of the value of your bicycle on a lock.
  • Lock it or lose it.
  • Park your bike in a public space where everyone can see it - people will also see if someone is trying to steal it.
  • Lock your frame and both wheels to an immovable object. If the lock only goes through the wheel a thief may steal the bike and leave the wheel behind.
