Keeping your bike secure

Worried about bike security? Thanks to SA Police, there are some great tips to keep your bike as secure as possible!

  • Engrave or mark your bike frame, and any bike accessories
    • Mark it permanently (ultraviolet pen, microdot, etc.) with “S” (for South Australia) followed by your driver’s licence number e.g. S123456
  • Take a photo of your bike, then complete the Bike Passport and keep it in a safe place.
  • Buy a good quality bike lock and make sure it fits well.
    • Need help with choosing a lock? Talk to Treadly (in the Hub’s Western Courtyard) or your bike dealer.
  • Park and secure your bike in well-lit and populated areas.
    • Lock your bike frame and both wheels to a secure object.
    • When securing your bike, remove equipment including helmet, lights, pump, etc.
  • Never leave your bike unattended and unlocked, even for a short period of time.
  • At home, keep your bike in a locked shed or inside your house.
