Motorcycle theft and secure parking facilities

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) is asking as many riders as possible to complete a short on-line survey about secure on-street parking facilities (motorcycle parking bays with railings or ground anchors).

MAG has lead the way in campaigning for secure bike parking for the last 20 years and is pleased to support researchers at Leicester University.

Nich Brown, MAG General Secretary said "This survey will help to give us a clearer picture of where we need to put our future efforts to fight the scourge of bike theft, and show the effectiveness of secure motorcycle parking facilities in preventing theft".

There is no need to give information about where you keep your bike and all responses will be treated as private and confidential.

To take part, go to www.surveymonkey.com/s/securebikeparking

To be included in the research study, the survey must be completed by 31st January 2012.


In 1992, MAG published the first ever guide to the design and provision of secure on-street and off-steet motorcycle parking which has been used by many local authorities and other parking providers.

The MAG Foundation (charity 1100274) produces an A-Z Guide to parking facilities throughout the UK, it is available free online from www.mag-foundation.org/secure%20parking.html

MAG offers a reward of up to £1,000 for information leading to the conviction of bike thieves where a MAG member's bike is stolen.
