Keep Your Bike Secure
Health Spark and BUGS have teamed up with Hampshire Constabulary and the Safer Student Forum to help reduce bicycle theft.
It's all too easy for thieves to cut through flexi-locks and the best way to secure your bike is with a strong D-lock.
This amazing scheme gives you the opportunity to purchase D-locks at trade price to help keep your bike safe! You can buy locks from Sport Solent main reception at SH103.
On Guard Pitbull 14mm D-lock = £30
On Guard Bulldog 13mm D-lock = £20
On Guard Bulldog 13mm D-lock + Cable = £24
On Guard Combo 12mm D-lock = £24
