LCC tags show cyclists how to Beat The Thief

During June LCC is tagging thousands of bikes all over Greater London to alert cyclists to the dangers of bike theft.

Each tag provides a list of locking dos and don'ts, and includes a bike record card, encouraging cyclists to make a note of the make, model and frame number of their bike to help recover it in case it's stolen.

There's also a link to LCC's Beat The Thief web pages, encouraging them to support our campaign.

Marketing manager Lucy Cooper said, "There'll be a second round of tagging during Bike Week, so if anyone wants to get involved they should get in touch on 020 7234 9310."
