Bike Marking Success At South Hatfield Event25 Apr 2022
A successful bike marking event was held by the Safer Neighbourhood Team in South Hatfield, Hertfordshire, recently.
PCSO Joanne Woods and PCSO Samantha Griffin hosted the event outside St John’s Church in Bishops Rise as part of the 2 Wheels bike safety campaign.
The campaign, led by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), encourages riders to ensure their bikes are roadworthy before heading out.
The event was an opportunity to educate cyclists on the measures they can take to ensure their bikes are roadworthy.
PCSO Joanne Woods said: “I would like to thank everyone who came along to the event. Bike-marking only takes a few seconds and it’s really useful in preventing theft. If a would-be thief finds a bike that is security-marked, they are less likely to take it because the bike is harder to sell on. It also means that your bike will be easier to track down.
“There’s a number of measures we encourage cyclists to take to make sure their bikes are safe. Firstly, make sure your tyres are pumped up and not worn. Check that your lights and reflectors are working properly and that safety equipment such as helmets fit correctly.
“If you were unable to make the event, I encourage you to register your bike online at BikeRegister (http://www.bikeregister.com). This is a national database which will make it easier to find your bike if it is ever lost or stolen.”
