– Andrew Gilligan, Cycling Commissioner for London
Bike crime is coming down, we've got it down by 11.3% and what that means is we've recovered an awful lot of bikes that need to be reunited with their owners.
We're asking people to register their bikes so firstly we known they're stolen - we can prove they're stolen - and we can get them back to the owner.
People looking to buy bikes online are being warned against using uncontrolled sites. London Cycling Campaign says bikes are often stolen and posted to be sold on websites.
