Bike theft is a huge issue in Bristol and there can few bike owners who don’t have a story to tell (Where are bikes being nicked, and who by?). This is a great infographic from Dublin Cycling Campaign that applies just as much to Bristol.

- Underground car parks and homes are as bad as streets for theft.
