CYCLISTS in Droitwich can ensure they stay in the saddle by safeguarding their bikes against theft.
A series of free bike-marking events – organised by Wychavon District Council – will be taking place throughout half-term.
The method sees a unique identifiable number applied to the frame of the bike, which is then registered with the National Bike Register Database.
This reduces the risk of theft and, if a bike is taken and then recovered, it is easier to reunite the rider with it.
A warning sticker is applied to warn potential thieves that the bike is marked. This makes it less attractive as a target for theft as it will be easier for police to identify it has been stolen and who the rightful owner should be.
Bike marking sessions are being held at Droitwich Railway Station between 7am and 9am on Monday, October 25, and at St Andrew’s Square between 10am and midday.
