Bike theft arrests

The Lancaster Guardian carries a story this week about the arrest of an alleged ring of bike thieves.  This is part of a European-wide police investigation into high-quality bike thefts.

The problem of bike theft crops up regularly at Dynamo meetings, so it is good to know that bikes can sleep safer in their sheds tonight.  However, that still leaves the opportunistic thefts of very ordinary – but, to their owners, essential – bikes from outside shops or backyards.  It’s worth getting a good lock, ensuring your bicycle is always secure (even in the shed), and getting it postcoded.

Has anyone got any advice for others to minimise the risk of having a bike stolen?
