Cycle awareness campaign

Cycle Awareness Campaign – 7 and 8 October

Security Services, in partnership with West Yorkshire Police and Leeds City Connect, will launch a new cycle campaign in October aimed at promoting bike security to new students in Leeds.

Security Services will be promoting two strands of cycle safety and security. For just £20 students can buy:

  • a solid D-Lock
  • front and rear lights for their bikes

Malcolm Dawson, Security Services Manager, said“This campaign is aimed at improving cycle safety and security across campus and follows on from last year’s successful campaign.”

Why is cycle safety and security important?

  • A good solid D-Lock makes it much harder for thieves to steal cycles and they usually go for those that are not secured properly or those with rather flimsy locks.
  • Unfortunately, accidents occur with cyclists often riding with no lights during darkness and front and rear lights will be supplied in the package.

We will be on the Precinct (opposite the Union) between 8.30am and 4pm on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 October. Students should head down to pick up a secure D-lock and a bike light set for just £20, whilst stocks last.  For further details contact m.dawson@leeds.ac.ukor crimeprevention@leeds.ac.uk
