Do a "This is London" event around Trafalgar Square or somewhere else touristy. Make it obvious it's a demonstration to avoid misunderstandings - have people with cameras and placards "demonstration" or something. Make it "creative". Have three actors/riders next to a bike.

Sorry I forgot to add, NO MOPED PASSENGERS, as the videos I saw had 2 people on one bike committing the crime 1 driver and one snatcher. Also another idea used is police stops.
