Hard question to answer, If using a bike just to go to a local shop then about a £10 lock and thats usually for a bike thats not worth a lot, but when on a club run none of our bikes are usually locked and theres some very expensive bikes yet not one bike has been taken maybe just luck?

Probably some rich pickings for bike thieves targeting some popular Sunday run cafes. Let's hope they don't realise.
 
They won’t be running very fast in their fancy carbon Sidi cycling shoes. The thieves will be long gone wearing their Nike Airs
one of us is always on watch and we would ride them down faster than adidas felony fliers and and and get knifed and run down by their following loot van ...I`ll just sit down for a bit now as I feel a bit wobbly ...maybe a cup of tea and a biscuit

I rather suspect the cyclist will be riding rather than running once they get to their bike, whereas the thief will be cross-chaining and accidentally activating the brake each time they change gear - or just dropping the chain if it's my derailleur bike with the funny shifters, or popping their knees if it's one of my roadsters and I left it parked in top again.

Apologies to those who know the story, but a fixie rider left a local shop to see a thief pedalling away on his steed. He shouted "stop thief", the thief looked round and tried to stop pedalling, at which point the bike bucked him and deposited him by the feet of two passing police officers. The thief tried to argue that the rider should be ticketed for leaving an unsafe bike around to be ridden, but didn't get far with that!
