We all love our bikes. There are few worse feelings than coming back to find a broken lock and your bike missing. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of bicycles get nicked by bike thieves every year.
One of the best ways to stop this is to lock your bike properly and leave it in the right place. So following on from the success / absurdity of the World Record Bike Daisy Chain the guys from Going Going Bike thought they’d see what’s the safest you could make a bike! And to do that they need your ideas on how to lock it, where to put it and what to do to it so that it couldn’t possibly get stolen!
To enter this competition submit an image in their Bike Love section of the safest you can make your bike. See the video below for inspiration…
A shortlist of the top 5 images will be decided by public vote on Going Going Bike before their panel of cycling experts will decide a winner. Main prize is to keep both you and your bike safe on the road with full high vis kit from Proviz – jacket, helmet and rucksack cover. All runners up receive a Proviz helmet.
Or, if you have some really crazy idea and don’t know how to take a photo of it, you can describe it on the Facebook page where our favourite 5 entries will win Cycleguard bike insurance. They’ll also be having some weekly Twitter competitions.
Deadline for submissions is November 25 with voting ending November 30. The winner chosen by the judges will be announced December 2.
Join in, be creative and help your fellow cyclist by showing them how to lock up their bike better!
