Mark your bikes to stop thefts

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

TWO dis­trict coun­cils are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to prop­erty mark their bikes to re­duce the risk of theft.

Chiltern and South Bucks dis­trict coun­cils say the sticker, which is stuck to the in­side of your bike frame and in­cludes your post­code, al­lows po­lice to easily iden­tify who the bike be­longs to if it gets stolen.

They also rec­om­mend keep­ing your bike in a locked garage or shed, us­ing a strong lock and se­cur­ing it to a bike rack where pos­si­ble, leav­ing your bike an open space where it can be seen, record­ing and reg­is­ter­ing it on www.im­mo­bilise.com and in­vest­ing in an elec­tronic tag­ging sys­tem.

Bikes can be marked at Cy­cle Tech, in Rig­nall Road, Great Mis­senden; Cy­cleFleet, in Rook­wood, Great Mis­senden; and Chiltern Bike Barn, in Mar­ket Place, Chal­font St Peter.

Con­tact 01494 586 535 or com­mu­ni­tysafety@ chiltern.gov.uk to ap­ply for your free sticker.
