Your pattern imprinted concrete driveway looks great, and it is further complemented by an awesome bike sat atop of it, which looks like a bat out of hell and purrs like a pussycat when you turn on the engine. Or maybe you’re more the mountain bike type? Or is yours a moped, or a scooter? Whatever the case, open vehicles bring with them an added concern — security. If you have a garage to secure them away in, then great, but what do you do otherwise? Even if you put a lock through the wheels, there is nothing to stop someone putting your beloved horse of steel on the back of a truck and driving away.
There are a number of solutions available, which mainly revolve around embedding a secure tethering point in a floor or wall — if you look at a site such as sportsbikeshop.co.uk or screwfix.com you’ll see the wide variety of ground and wall anchors available.
Most of these screw or bolt into brick or concrete, so a concrete driveway or brick wall is an ideal mount point for such a solution. Just have a think about what suits your particular situation in terms of security and aesthetics. Combine such a solution with a hardwearing lock or chain, and you’ll make life very difficult for any would-be thief.
