Police in Erewash offer residents two opportunities this weekend to get their bikes security marked for free
Main article content
We are offering cyclists in Erewash the opportunity to have their bikes security marked for free this weekend.
Officers from our Safer Neighbourhood teams are holding two events this weekend in Long Eaton and Ilkeston and are urging people to come along and meet the team and have their bikes protected.
The scheme works by marking the bike with a unique code linked to the owner’s details on a secure database. If their cycle is stolen and subsequently found, we can use this code to ensure the bike is returned to its rightful owner and prove it is stolen.
The marking by www.BikeRegister.com is usually £12 but is being offered free by our Safer Neighbourhood teams.
The first event is being held at West Park, Long Eaton on Saturday, June 1, between 11am and 1pm
The next event is at the entrance to the Nutbrook Trail, Barling Drive, Ilkeston on Sunday, June 2, between 11am and 1pm.
Anyone attending to have their bike marked should bring with them some form of identification.
