*If your bike is stolen, report it to the police on 101 and flag it as stolen on your account as soon as possible.
*If your bike is recovered and you have registered it you will be contacted and told your cycle is safe.
*Lock your bike safely - it’s always best to use two different locks to make it harder to steal as the thief needs different tools for each lock.
