Halifax police are reminding cyclists to lock up their ride after a string of bicycle thefts in the city since June 1.

Police say in the past three months, there have been reports of 30 bicycles being stolen in Halifax, including at hospitals, hotels and universities.

In a release issued Tuesday, police are reminding cyclists of some security tips. They include using a quality bike lock, locking the frame of the bike to a secure object, and to secure it in a well-lit area.

If your bike is stolen, police ask that you report it to them right away, and have at the ready the serial number, make, model, speed, colour and any distinguishing markings.
