Bike touring is a great way to get some exercise at the same time as seeing the countryside. Why not take the whole family? But be careful - a lot of tours have ended because of a rotten thief taking a chance and leaving with a bike that wasn't his. Let's face it - without a bike the holiday/tour is pretty much over. You are going to spend the rest of the time in the police station explaining what happened. The good news is that most thieves are opportunistic. The thefts can easily be prevented with some common sense tactics. The team over at On Your Cycle produced 8 sure-fire ways to keep your bike safe while touring. The list includes tips such as making sure you carry a visible, sturdy lock and locking your bike near others to reduce the chance of you becoming a target.
