Bike Theft

We the undersigned petition the council to Make it safe to leave bicycles locked up in the city centre without the constant spectre of theft, and do more to discourage bike theft in Oxford more generally.

Bike theft in Oxford is at a wholly unacceptable level. With the council looking to introduce bus gates, and to get more people cycling into and around Oxford, more needs to be done to reduce bicycle related crime. The council should take a much more proactive approach to finding solutions. Be that introducing better facilities for securing bikes in the city centre and/or making funding available for the police to properly tackle the problem. One should be able to lock up a bike in town for an hour or two without constantly worrying whether it will be there upon return. Enough is enough.
