Police warn that bicycle thefts are typically on the rise during this time of the year.
Avoid being a target for bicycle thieves.
- Register bicycles with the police. If stolen and recovered by the police they know who to contact rather than relegating bicycles to unclaimed property and auctioned off.
- Invest in a quality lock. Use a second lock to chain up the frame of the bicycle to something sturdy, as thieves sometimes steal the frame and leave a locked wheel behind.
If your bicycle is stolen, @FindMyBikeGTA is a social media network on Twitter that posts information about stolen bicycles in Toronto.
