Detectives over at the Barrie Police Service are working a number of bicycle thefts of late, so they’re offering up a few tips and tricks to protect your ride. Police reminding everyone to make sure your bike is locked securely to an immovable object like a bike rack. Use a high quality, thick lock. Make sure both wheels are locked to the frame. Insure your bike. Write down the model, make, serial number, of your bike, and take a picture of it in case you need to go to the cops.
