I do wonder about when little one is older though and the prospect of her pulling them over.

Anyway, I'm just jealous, we live in the middle of Winchester and have on street parking. I get 'driveway envy' looking at other folks' homes, let alone garage envy Very Happy


I always worried about fingers in spokes if I was on the trainer!

I've had to put-off buying the Ferrari FF for now Rolling Eyes as our house was built before cars existed, and has a very narrow walled driveway along most if it; decent sized garage added later though.

Motorbikers have a lot more to lose than most cyclists, so worth looking at their solutions:
http://www.motorcyclenews.com/new-rider/choosing-kit/2006/november/apr20-05-how-to-secure-garage-against-thieves-/

Regardless of what you do for door security, have a couple of GBP100+ motorbike chains and ground or wall anchors to secure everything inside.

A locking post in front of the garage door serves 3 purposes:
Security by preventing garage door being opened without removing post first.
Prevents wife hitting garage door or parking too close so you can't get bikes out without moving car.
Prevents ram-raids and probably means you don't need to change existing door.

If your garage has a side/back door, don't forget to consider that.

My strava settings have home hidden so the first/last 1km doesn't show.


Didn't know you could do this - thanks!

It is not robust, you can reconstruct the location of the start of rides by uploading files as the fly-by api's invade the hidden space - however it depends who you're up against - as that would be targetted attacks only and they probably have other ways.

If you hide your location, pick a post code / point that is not your actual home, so the circle is centered on somewhere else - as that is more obvious.

Good tips thanks for that. I will move the centre point for mine. I also start and stop the ride at the end of the road anyway.

I don't have mike bike listed under gear on Strava so no one knows what I ride. I think my biggest likelihood of theft is some scrote seeing me riding the bike near my house and then scouting the garages later on.

I currently have one of these stuck on the rafters inside. Won't scare anyone away, but hopefully I can find them afterwards, or perhaps even call the neighbour when it triggers (e.g. if I'm on holiday).

I need to beef up my garage door, but that seems pretty hard to do really. Currently just using 3 extra bolts that I whack across from the inside when going on holiday (we have a side door that's far more secure).

I'm also going to wall anchor the bikes with heavy chain locks. Won't stop them, but perhaps delay things enough for me to have time to act (as in act on alarm kicking off).

There is a plan for Blink to make both a siren and a two-way comms unit, which would be nice: "Hey you in the hoodie, get the feck out of my garage!". Wouldn't be surprised if that'd beat the heck out of any siren actually.

Stick the Porsche in front of the garage door and the Range Rover in front of the Porsche so they don't steal that....
