Going Going Bike Launch "Lock It or Lose It" anti bike theft compertition.

Support and prizes provided by PROVIZ and Cycleguard Expert judging panel comprising representatives from Cyclodelic, Guardian, Evening Standard, London Cyclist, Bikeshd, and Bicycle Images.
 
Nov. 11, 2010 - PRLog -- We all love our bikes. There are few worse feelings than coming back to find a
broken lock and your bike missing. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of bicycles
get nicked by bike thieves every year.

One of the best ways to stop this is to lock your bike properly and leave it in the right
place. So following on from the success / absurdity of our World Record Bike Daisy
Chain we thought we’d see what’s the safest you could make a bike! And to do that
we need your ideas on how to lock it, where to put it and what to do to it so that it
couldn’t possibly get stolen!

To enter this competition starting November 11 submit an image in our Bike Love
section of the safest you can make your bike. See our video for some of the ideas
we’ve come up with so far!

A shortlist of the top 5 images will be decided by public vote on Going Going Bike
before our panel of cycling experts will decide a winner. Main prize is to keep both
you and your bike safe on the road with full high vis kit from Proviz – jacket, helmet
and rucksack cover. All runners up receive a Proviz helmet.

Or, if you have some really crazy idea and don’t know how to take a photo of it,
you can describe it on our Facebook page where our favourite 5 entries will win
Cycleguard bike insurance. We’ll also be having some weekly Twitter competitions.

Deadline for submissions is November 25 with voting ending November 30. The
winner chosen by the judges will be announced December 2.

Join in, be creative and help your fellow cyclist by showing them how to lock up their
bike better! For full info check out www.goinggoingbike.com/lockitorloseit
