Our society is in a constant evolution to become greener. We are frequently encouraged to recycle, to utilize reusable materials so that they don’t make their way to landfills, and use environmentally efficient transport. Some choose carpooling, others may take a bus or metro if they’re available, but many others have taken a more athletic route: biking.
More and more people are giving up their cars and riding their bikes to and from work and for good reason! Cycling saves the expense of owning a car and provides great exercise. Increasingly, America’s largest cities are making it safer and easier for bicyclists to get around, even in some of the busiest downtown areas.
Bike theft is a pressing concern for cyclists, from beginning riders to professional competitors. Unfortunately, the problem doesn’t seem to be getting any better despite increased awareness, local prevention efforts, and advances in lock technology. According to FBI statistics, an estimated 1.5 million bicycles are reported stolen each year. That’s compared to only half a million automobiles stolen on an annual basis. So what can cyclists do to deter theft and protect their property?
