Why not just lock it up anyway.
If it goes walkabout then, it would have been easier to steal without the lock.
You wouldn't park the van and not lock it, or would you.

Having ridden a bike in and around London for the passed 40 years having a number of bikes stolen in that time, all being securely locked I think I am probably more aware than most how biking works in the UK but was attempting to pick the brains of those regular users in Benidorm. Example you can leave bikes in some places without problems ie Cyprus or parts of the US. How about Benidorm.

No safer or worse than most other holiday places..
I would never leave one unlocked or out of site...

Not much help I know... :whistle:

People leave unwanted items outside our apartment block, there are local Gypsys / scrap men who come and take it almost as soon as its put outside. I suspect they would not think twice about throwing on a bike..
