During the first COVID Lockdown in April to June 2020, there was a huge increase in bike sales, 63% up on the same period year-on-year, as reported by the Bicycle Association.
Figures compiled for the first half of 2020 by BikeRegister, the UK's national cycle database, confirm that there has been a significant rise in bike theft reported to them in June – up a staggering 48% on 2019.
With many new bicycle owners, knowledge about what is GREAT Bicycle Security is diluted, and criminals are taking advantage of poorly secured bikes at homes and from the high street.
