TRAVEL BY BIKE TO LEICESTER AND GET A FREE D-LOCK!
East Midlands Trains has joined forces with British Transport Police to offer free D-Locks to anyone signing up to Cycle Hub life membership.
The one day special offer takes place on Tuesday 3rd February at Leicester station Cycle Hub between 6.30am-10am and 4pm to 6pm.
Leicester station’s £600,000 Cycle Hub opened in June 2014 and provides secure, underground cycle storage and facilities for more than 300 bicycles. Life membership costs £10 and provides access to all cycle facilities across the East Midlands Trains network.
Rob Greensmith, Crime Prevention Manager for East Midlands Trains, said: “Cycle security is extremely important and we work closely with our partners, including British Transport Police to help our customers keep their bikes safe and secure.
“The Leicester Cycle Hub is an absolutely fantastic facility and provides secure bike storage but these D-Locks will provide extra security here and anywhere else cyclists store their bikes.”
Chief Inspector David Scott of British Transport Police said, “Over the past few years we have seen an increase in passengers using bikes to travel to and from railway stations.
“Unfortunately, this has also provided increased opportunities for thieves and due to them being relatively easy to steal and dispose of bikes sadly remain an attractive target for thieves.
“Correctly securing a bike in a cycle hub facility such as this, using a good quality gold standard lock and ensuring your bike is marked and registered will deter a thief from stealing or attempting to steal a bike.
“It’s quite surprising that someone would spend over £1000 on a bike then use a £5 lock to secure it. We would always recommend spending at least 10% of the bike cost on an appropriate lock.”
Tips and advice to keep you bike secure
D-locks are often considered to be one of the most secure ways to lock your bike. Their name comes from the shape of the lock, which is a 'U' shaped loop with a large locking bar across the open end of the 'U'.
