Following a recent spate of bike thefts, which left some Poole Hospital staff unable to get to work, Dorset Rough Riders, a Bournemouth and Poole based off-road cycle club, has donated 10 bike locks.

At a cost of £50 each, the locks have a silver and gold ‘sold level’, part of a three tier security grading system. They offer increased security with hardened steel links to help prevent pick, drilling and leverage attacks.

Gold sold level locks offer the highest security rating for cycle locks and are bike insurer friendly.

“We feel that if you are going to spend money on a bike to commute to work then a lock with good security is vital,” said Terri Winstanley, member of Dorset Rough Riders.

In addition to the locks, Dorset Rough Rider company-branded neck buffs and additional promotional materials have also been donated.

Terri added, “As a group of avid bike riders, we were incredibly saddened to hear of bike thefts from both Poole Hospital and The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals, which our members have had cause to use over the years.”
