Keep your bicycle at home when you are not using it.
If you need to park your bicycle at a public place, choose one with high human traffic preferably with CCTV monitoring.
Secure your bicycle to a permanent structure such as a bicycle rack.
Use a good quality lock such as a U-lock.
Ensure all removable bicycle components are locked or secured.
Make permanent identification marks such as engravings on the body of your bicycle.
