Bike security

Even though bike thefts in the UK have dropped in recent years, almost 400,000 bikes are stolen each year.

Is your bike properly locked? 

Did you know that most bikes stolen from University premises were "secured" with either cable locks or poor quality chains? These locks can easily be cut by theives.
D-locks can be purchased from The Basket Shop in the Richmond Building (Student Union building), or at Sustainability's Lock and Light sales

We recommend using locks with a Silver, Gold or Platinum 'Sold Secure' rating. Locks sold by the University of Bristol will as a minimum meet the Silver Sold Secure requirements. 

Is your bike registered? 

The University offers regular Bike Register security marking sesssions free of charge to staff and students.

What is the University doing?

 *Currently only available to members of UoB staff. UG and PG students are not permitted to use the bike sheds
