Newark and Sherwood District Council urges cyclists to get bicycles marked for free at Bridge Community Centre, Newark, to help reduce thefts

Newark and Sherwood District Council has urged cyclists to get their bikes marked for free at an event tonight (Wednesday).

Newark Police will be in attendance at the Bridge Community Centre, Lincoln Road, for the bike marking that aims to reduce cycle thefts in the town.

It also helps in identifying stolen bikes and assists police in finding its owner. The event is to take place between 5pm and 8pm.

Marking involves taking the frame number from the cycle and placing on a unique reference number with a chemical compound, and applying a semi-tamper-proof sticker.

All information is recorded and logged on a secure database, BikeRegister.
