Bike marking in AbergelePhotograph of a bicycle being security marked


Cyclists in the Abergele area are being urged to get their bikes security marked.


Local PCSO Courtney Hughes is holding a bike marking event at the town's TESCO store from 3pm until 6pm on Wednesday, March 6.


The service is free and bike owners of all ages are being encouraged to go along and take advantage of the session and also pick up some handy tips on keeping bikes secure - even when out and about.


"Bike marking is simple yet effective and I'd encourage anyone who owns a bike to come along and get it marked," said PCSO Hughes. "Some bikes are worth considerable amounts of money, so it is essential that people take appropriate steps to keep their property secure. If you are a bike owner, make sure you have a good quality bike lock and use it - even if you intend to leave your bike for just for a few minutes outside your home or when you take a ride out . Cyclists can also register their bikes with for free."


The session is the latest to be organised by PCSO Hughes and members of the Abergele Neighbourhood Policing Team. The events started with a visit to Ysgol St Elfod at the beginning of February where 18 bikes were marked and will continue to take place over the coming weeks and months at various venues.
