CYCLISTS can protect their bikes at free events being held across Malvern Hills District in the coming weeks.
The free bike marking events have been organised by Malvern Hills District Council.
Sessions see cycles being given a unique identifiable number to the frame of the bike which is then registered with the National Bike Register Database.
This reduces the risk of a bike being stolen and if stolen, it makes it easier for it to be reported and hopefully found again.
The events will follow social distancing guidelines at all times. Slots of 15 minutes will be available and booking is essential.
The first ones are on October 26 – from 6am to 9am at Malvern Link Railway Station, between 10am and 1pm at the Great Malvern Council House and from 2pm to 4pm at Upton Library.
On October 28 there is one at Great Malvern Railway Station between 6am and 9am and the final one is on October 29 from 2pm to 4pm in Tenbury Market Square.
Coun Tom Wells, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “More of us are cyclists these days.
“We had a great response to our last Bike Marking event and we encourage people to sign up and take the measures to protect their property from thieves.
“The sessions will be safe to attend and social distancing measures will be in place at all times.”
