Carl Ellis

I've had bikes stolen in London, New York and Barcelona. Yep, I was a serial, international, bike theft victim. In 2015 I decided to stop the rot. And not a single bike's been stolen since! Brakes, yes. Bells, yes. But they're another story. Everything I learn, I document on this website. More about my story. Contact me. LinkedIn.

  • Hi Carl, I am working on a document at work about combating bike theft for our cycling commuters – do you mind if I use your infographic? I see you provided the link, but figured it was still best form to ask.
