“We found that 10pc of people didn’t lock their bikes at all and a further 45pc used cable locks. Now I know from my own painful experience, cable locks aren’t adequate in Dublin. I mean this time last year I had a €800 mountain bike taken in Temple Bar. I was using a cable lock. I was actually in a meeting with somebody from the [Dublin] City Council on the subject of bike theft at time. It’s a lesson I haven’t forgotten so the single thing people can do is buy good locks…”
