A couple of weeks ago I went for a bike ride on a sunny Saturday. July 2014 has been a pleasure for bike riders because there has been lovely warm weather and almost no rain.
Hampshire and Berkshire has some of the most scenic windy country lanes available offering breathtaking views and wonderful colours. Early summer presented rolling hills of yellow as the Oilseed Rape came into blossom and then came the 50 shades of Green for as far as the eye can see. As midsummer takes hold the surprising changing colours of the countryside settle and it is up to the rider to search for hidden no so obvious gems to occupy the mind.

A Motor driver friend of mine was recently involved in a collision with a cyclist. While I would hate to pass judgement on who was at fault, the fact of the matter is that in car and bicycle collisions, the bicycle rider is usually the more vulnerable of the two. Drivers are taught right from wrong on the road and are required to pass both a theory and practical test before they can drive unsupervised in the UK, yet cyclists can hit the roads from an early age and in most cases rely on common sense and the diligence of other motorists to avoid collisions. If the worse should happen and a cyclist is involved in a collision then for a number of reasons motor drivers are far more protected.

Given time and determination, there’s just no way to protect a bike from thieves. Risk of bicycle theft can be minimised but does not guarantee that it will not be stolen. If they want it, they are going to find a way of getting it. That’s why bicycle insurance is a good idea, especially for the more expensive rides. The thieves like high-value rides that are both easy to get to and easy to resell.
A £1,000 ride leaned up against a wall in is a theft magnet no matter how well-traveled the area is. Whereas a cheap bike chained to something immoveable is going to be much safer no matter the neighborhood.
Considering that bike thieves work with just a few tools – they do plan to ride your stolen bike away from the scene after all – making your ride a less likely target is not hard. Here’s a few tips to do that.
