News: Bicycle Thefts

bicycle thefts

Please be aware that thieves are now targeting bicycles that are attached to the back of vehicles parked in the New Forest, especially in the Forest’s campsites and car parks.

The thieves are using bolt cutters to break through any chains that are being used to secure the bicycles to the racks on the backs of vehicles.

There are now bicycle locks that are alarmed and can be used to secure your bicycle to your vehicle.

If you are able to keep your bicycle in your vehicle then that is another excellent way of protecting it.

In June, the New Forest Heart Neighbourhood Policing Team will be joining forces with the British Transport Cycle Crime Team and holding some bicycle safety events in the New Forest. Venues and dates to follow.
