Suspect someone is involved in cycle theft?

We have launched a new campaign in London to encourage more people to report cycle crime in the city.

In London last year there were a total of 17,367 bicycle thefts, according to figures from the Metropolitan Police.

  • 50 per cent of those involved with cycle crime are aged 19 or under,
  • 98 per cent of them are male,
  • 54 per cent will commit the crime in the borough where they live.

If you have information, you can phone us anonymously on 0800 555 111 or fill in our Anonymous Online Form.

Stolen bikes can pop up for sale in a range of different places; these include:

  • Auction/Classifieds websites

Report bike thieves anonymously

Cycle crime involves the theft of bikes as well as the handling of stolen bikes or bike parts.

With our new campaign, which has the full support of the Metropolitan Police's Roads and Transport Policing Command, we’re urging members of the public to report anyone involved with cycle crime.

If you have information, you can phone us anonymously on 0800 555 111 or fill in our Anonymous Online Form.

Cash reward of up to £1,000 for information

We’re offering a reward of up to £1,000 for any information on those involved in cycle crime, which leads to the arrest and charge of those responsible.

“Cycling has increased in popularity in the past few years and there is a need to improve bicycle security.

“We would urge anyone who has information about those involved in stealing bikes or handling stolen bikes and bike parts to share it with us anonymously.

“We don’t ever take personal details and we can’t trace information given online or on the phone. We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know.”

Crimestoppers’ Regional Manager for London
