Bicycle Storage

In The Open
Good quality locks are a good idea and a sound investment. Use the lock to secure your bike to something immovable, such as a lamppost or the many cycle stands now available in town centres. Securing two or more bikes together works very well but make sure the owner of the other bike knows about it! Sounds daft? Its been known that some people have waited two and a half hours for a cyclist to return to release a bike.

Leaving your bike within public gaze, rather than down a dark ally where would be thieves can use cable/bolt cutters, is also a good idea. Some cyclists often remove the front wheel and slide their lock through the wheel and the frame. It's not unknown for thieves to take just a wheel or anything else with a quick-release fitting and sell it. Therefore consider removing quick release items such as saddles and computers when leaving your bike unattended.

In Storage (Sheds or Garages, Bicycle Storage)
Still consider using locks. Securing clamps are also available for fixing your bike to the floor, wall or ceiling.

Consider an intruder alarm for the garage or bicycle storage shed, one that makes a very loud noise and alert you to respond.

Use three padlocks on your shed door i.e. top, middle, bottom. Yes it's more of a hassle to get to your bike but it's equally difficult for the thief. Consider intruder lights in the garden near your bicycle storage shed.

Kayak StorageKayak Storage - Ultraviolet light is a killer (aluminum canoes are the exception), so store your canoes and kayaks in a weather-protected area out of the sun. An open shed or canvas awning provides enough cover. If you use a garage, be wary of windows that project a focused beam of light onto the hull. Kayak Storage.

On Your Car
Many people carry bikes on car racks and often walk away from them believing their bike is secure. It could be if the bike is locked to the car rack and the car rack straps are not too easy to cut. I know of people returning to their cars to find both car rack and bikes gone.
