Cyclists who use mobile phone apps and websites to plan, track, and share their rides are being targeted by bike thieves.

In order to minimize the risk of being tracked do not start at stop tracking your rides from your home and be careful what data you publicly share. As a rule you should not publicly share information about your bikes or their value.
