Cyclists can get their bikes security marked and registered for free at an event at Rushcliffe Arena.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Community Safety team and Nottinghamshire Police will host the session at the centre on Rugby Road in West Bridgford on Saturday, May 18 from 10 am to 12 pm.
Despite continued efforts by community safety partners, bike theft remains one of the most common crimes in Rushcliffe, especially in West Bridgford and security marking or registering a bike can ensure Police can return it to its rightful owner.
Hotspot locations have been identified in the town including at some of its leisure centres and signage is now raising awareness at each location. Cyclists are reminded that only a strong “D” lock will provide adequate security.
The session will also advise on how to further protect bikes from thieves, including locking them in a public and well-lit area.
The event is also an opportunity to swap weaker locks for a ‘D’ lock at the event, whilst stocks last.
