The figures presented here are from the 2010/11 British Crime Survey (BCS).
Bicycle theft covers thefts of bicycles belonging to the respondent or any member of the respondent’s household. This category does not include every bicycle theft, as some may be stolen during the course of another offence (eg. burglary) and are therefore classified as such in the BCS.
