Bike marking in town today

First published in News

CYCLISTS in the town can have their bike security marked for free during an event on Friday after a number of thefts in the town in the past few months.

PC Danny Gee and other officers wiil be on hand from 10am to 3pm at the Old Market Place in Golden Square.

PC Gee said: "It acts as a deterrent to would-be thieves and is also a good way of identifying a bike if it is ever stolen and later recovered.

"We do recover many bikes, which we suspect are stolen, but we are often unable to trace the owners as there are no security markings on them.”

This is a completely futile gesture. When my bike was stolen, I had it marked. The police found it (presumably when the thief did something else wrong) and asked me if I'd sold it to him. They then said it was my word against theirs regarding ownership. Helpful.
