Bike riding is such a great activity over the summer. You get a little fresh air, exercise, fun, and it’s an environmentally-friendly form of transportation. However, we have to eventually park our bikes when we get to our final destinations, potentially leaving our bicycles vulnerable to theft.

At one of our recent Sunday morning services at Victoria Hills Community Centre, someone from our congregation bicycled to the service. Her bicycle was stolen, in spite of a sturdy bike chain which was snipped.

This is a reminder that bike theft happens and we can take measures to lower the risk of theft. Use at least one good quality D type lock through the frame of your bike and lock to something secure. I found a great bike lock guide on Chooserly.

As well, take several photos of your bicycle and record the serial number.
