West Bridgford Neighbourhood Policing teams and Rushcliffe Borough Council will be holding bike marking and repair events this weekend.
Cyclists can get minor repairs completed and their bikes securely marked for free on Saturday November 13 at a security event at the Hook in Lady Bay, West Bridgford.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Community Safety team and Nottinghamshire Police will host the session at the Hook car park off Holme Road, NG2 5AA adjacent to the skatepark from 10am to 12pm.
Cyclists can receive the free check of their two wheels courtesy of the Dr Bike team’s qualified mechanics simply by dropping into the session.
The event will also be another opportunity to have a bike security marked and registered to ensure it is returned to the rightful owner if retrieved after it is stolen.
Bike users attending the event will receive advice on how to further protect their cycles from thieves with the use of stronger locks and how bikes should always be locked up in a public and well-lit area.
Weak locks can also be swapped for a ‘D’ lock at the event, whilst stocks last.
The session will also provide burglary prevention advice, 24-hour timers and shed locks to help residents keep their property secure.
