Bike marking in Abergele
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 BikeRegister.com 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.
