With more people purchasing bikes and enjoying the outdoors, Gardaí have crime prevention advice to prevent bicycle thefts.
Officers said to spend 10% to 20% of the value of your bike on two locks.
Lock your bike tightly to an immovable object and keep the lock off the ground.
Take a photo of your bike, note the serial number and email it to yourself so that you have a record of it.
Lock your bike indoors or in well-lit areas if possible.
