Castlepoint Bike Security
We are fully aware of the amount of bike theft that occurs locally. Castlepoint are working with the Police in the community to help prevent the possible theft of your bike.
D locks are considered the most secure way to lock up your bike. Large D locks are easier to use and can lock several bikes at a time, but mini D locks are light and easy to carry, plus they are harder for thieves to break.
It will give you the peace of mind that you can leave your bike secure when you go shopping.
