Keep your bike safe

Your bike is left at your own risk. Cyclehoop are not responsible for the loss, damage and theft of bicycles, locks or other items stored in the units. We recommend you lock your bike using a heavy duty lock that is Sold Secure rated, as well as a robust chain or cable.

Follow these tips to make sure your bike stays safe and secure

Ensure your location is safe. Make sure your bike is locked in a Bikehangar or in a well-lit non-isolated area and near other bikes

Use two different high-quality locks. This would make it more awkward for thieves as they would have to use different types of tools to remove them. We recommend a heavy-duty D lock and a robust chain or cable

Use a heavy-duty D-lock that is ideally Sold Secure rated. Another rule of thumb, is to buy a lock that costs a third of the value of your bicycle

Lock both the frame and wheels to the cycle parking

Secure your bike as close to the stand as possible. Your bike needs to be difficult to manoeuvre with no leverage points for thieves

Take any quick release parts with you e.g. quick-release saddles and wheels

Remove your lights

Register your bike. The sticker will put thieves off. It will also make it easier to find, should it get stolen. You can register it here:
