1,581 – how many bikes were stolen in Dorset last year with cyclists urged to use D-locks

TARGETS: Sgt Dave Moore, Cllr Dave Smith, Rachel Hardy and Cllr Michael Filer in Bournemouth Square to remind cyclists that cable style locks are an easy target for thieves

First published in News by

AN ALARMING 1,581 bicycles were stolen in Dorset last year.

According to police figures 818 in Bournemouth, 403 in Poole, 81 in Christchurch and 279 in other parts of the county were taken by thieves in 2013.

In the first six months of this year 589 cycles were snatched. The annual total represents more than four a day and the police and council are urging cyclists to think about how they secure their bikes – with police claiming 90 per cent of thefts occur due to the use of inadequate locks.

Armed with a pair of bolt cutters, Cllr David Smith demonstrated how quick and easy it can be to steal a bike that appears to be secure during a demonstration at Bournemouth Square last week.

“It is very important to use the right lock,” he added.

“Anything other than a D-lock is a waste of time because they can easily cut through them in two seconds with a pair of bolt cutters.”

The council is clipping notices to bikes in the town urging them to use D-locks and the campaign follows its bike tagging initiative – which involves applying a permanent unique number to a bike stored on a database so it can be traced later.

Sgt Dave Moore, of Bournemouth Police, is also backing the council’s efforts and said he hopes the message about tagging serves to deter potential criminals.

“It is about making your bike as unattractive to thieves as possible,” he said.

“Around 20 bikes a month are taken from central Bournemouth – and that is 20 too many.”

Inspector Heather Dixey, of Bournemouth police, said more than half of all bicycle thefts take place from an owner’s property and simple prevention methods can be used to deter thieves.
She suggests keeping the bike in a secure garage or shed with the door locked, keeping it out of public view or securing it to an immovable object.
She said: “When out and about on your bike, remember to secure it with a lock to a secure fixing by putting the lock through the frame of the bike – D locks are a very effective way to secure your bike. If dark, avoid leaving it in dimly lit locations.”

Be useful as well if the coppers or those plastic ones stopped the idiots that cycle around on decent bikes and ask for prove of purchase. If not take them off and the rightful owner could be found. Have a look at how many of thee scum bag druggies, alcoholics etc are cycling lovely mountain bikes. No chance of that though as we seem to pander to these idiots.

D Locks can be chopped just as easily when they are at ground level, try and keep your locks and chains up high, they are much harder to crop when thieves don't have the leverage against the ground.

I'd like to see a more proactive approach from the police though, set up a few half decent bikes and put them under surveillance, I bet half the stolen bikes are taken by the same handful of thieves.

There are actually GPS cycle tracker systems available that work in the same way as on mobile phones that can be tracked online, around £100 and then if your bike is stolen the police can quickly find it and catch the thieves.

You don't need to pay any of those things "to use the road".
If you chose to arrange your life so that you use a highly taxed and regulated mode of personal transport that's YOUR decision, YOUR lifestyle choice.
There's no point in ranting at those that have made different choices.

It's equivalent to whingeing about the tax on fags and booze then complaining that a teetotaller gets medical treatment for free.

I don't think many appreciate the value of their bikes and other items in their garage? A lot of people fit alarms to their house but not their garage even though its often adjacent to the house and can be wired on a separate zone so it can be alarmed when your home. Easy to do be very few do it.

Easy pickings for a thief?

Somewhat patronising, bikes are big business and a large amount of that number will have been professionally stolen from locked garages or even inside houses, probably locked up as well. Spilt for parts or sold up country.

You do realise of course that the majority of cyclists also own cars thus making the same contributions as those who always use that argument.

I don't actually cycle but if I did I would certainly invest £100 on that tracker, if only to help the police catch the thieves.

I have a car and two motorbikes. I have to insure all three of them so I don't understand your argument. If cyclists had to be insured to go on the road then they would be covered in the event of an accident or theft - quite simple really and if cyclists used the cycle paths/lanes provided at great expense then there would not be so many accidents....

Absolutely! But then again, there are cyclists regularly going the wrong way around Hinton Road & Westover Road, through red traffic lights or high speeds through pedestrianised areas and then have the cheek to shout at you if you're in the way.

It is a shame that cyclists have developed a bad reputation due to the actions of some. Exercise such as cycling should be encouraged, but I wouldn't feel comfortable cycling on the roads today, partly due to the poor layout of cycle lanes, but also due to the dangerous actions of some motorists.

Suzigirl, many many cyclist have insurance. In fact the majority of members of British Cycling have insurance (82,000 and counting), me included, mainly to cover the costs and associated legal wrangling’s if/when we get knocked off our bikes. 3rd party cover is included in that.

What I don't insure is my bike like many other cyclists as the premium on expensive bikes is pretty ridiculous - £800 a year on my road bike, more than the insurance on both of my cars together.

So if you were to knock me off, your insurance would buy me a new bike and fix your car. If I crashed into you and smashed my bike, I'm fresh out of luck.
