The survey results will be expertly analysed by Quanteze, the online survey consultancy, and data will be made publicly available by Stolen Ride and London Cycling Campaign.

Richard Cantle, Founder of Stolen Ride says “I urge all London cyclists to take and share this survey with others. Data is not only essential to fully understand trends and habits; it can be used to push and influence change. Stolen Ride is currently focused on its expansion into crime prevention and this data will be vital in our mission to create awareness and to help keep London cycling”.

Amy Summers, Campaigns Coordinator at London Cycling Campaign says “Cycle theft is a huge problem and barrier to cycling growth in London. LCC is committed to creating a happier city for everyone and with two-thirds of victims giving up cycling after having a bike stolen, helping to tackle cycle theft is crucial. The data will help us craft campaigns to address specific areas.”
