Thames Valley Police and Roy Pinks Cycles are arranging two bike-marking events to promote safe cycling.

The events will be held on Tuesday, May 7 and Tuesday, May 28, from 3pm untill 5pm at Stantonbury Parish Council Office in 126, Kingsfold, Stantonbury.

Police Community support officer Chris Nicholls is the man behind the event.

He wants to encourage people of all ages to cycle safely and to have their bikes marked. The sessions will include free bike safety checks, advice and membership to the cycle watch scheme.

It will cost £4.50 to mark each bike.

Mr Nicholls said that the more cyclist who know the risks of riding their bikes at night the less accidents there will be on the roads.
