Cyclists are being offered the chance to have their bikes security marked for free today.

Officers from the Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Team will be at the event at King of the Rhodes Cycles in Chells between 10am and 2pm.

All the bikes details will be entered into Immobilise – a free property database which helps find stolen bikes and the convict criminals who steal them.

PCSO Kirsty Lambert, who is based in Chells, said: “Security marking bikes is a great way of helping to prevent them from being stolen and we are currently experiencing a high volume of bike thefts in Stevenage at the moment.

“If you have not already had your bike security marked we would urge you to do so.”
