Want security marking? Get on your bike

CYCLISTS have the chance to get their bikes security marked and put on a national database for less than five pounds.

Milton Keynes Council has joined forces with Thames Valley Police and officers will be at the new cycle rack shelters in Station Square next Wednesday from 7am to 9am and again between 4.45pm and 6.45pm to mark bicycles and to offer security advice to cyclists. The cost of this extra piece of mind is just £4.50 per bicycle.

Security marking your bicycle involves placing a unique reference number onto the bike which is listed on a national database alongside your name and details.

If your bike is stolen then this number will allow it to be returned to you if it is recovered. Used bike sellers can also use this database to ensure that the stock they are buying or selling is not reported as stolen.
