Our tips for securing your bike

Always attach your bike, even in closed spaces and even for short periods. use bike shelters for added security.

  • Opt for a solid U-shaped lock (more resistant). Thin cables are easier to cut.
  • Attach the frame and the front wheel to a fixed point with the lock facing down. For added security, you can also lock the rear wheel with a frame lock.
  • And of course, get your bike marked! The BICYCODE® marking consists of engraving a unique number on your bike which will facilitate its return in the event of loss or theft.
