Bike theft is on the increase, especially in West Bridgford Town Centre. Five bikes have been stolen in this area alone between the 11th and 17th July.
With the school summer holidays approaching, more people will be out and about on their bikes.
Nottinghamshire Police have offered the following advice: “When visiting West Bridgford Town Centre on your bike, please remember the recently installed secure bike shed which has CCTV protection.
“The shed is located in the library car park and is available for all to use and is free of charge. You will need a City Card to access the shed which can be obtained from Broad Marsh Bus Station.
“Why not pop along to our Road Safety Event on Tuesday 28th July on Central Avenue in West Bridgford and have your bike security marked free of charge – bring an old lock and swap for a D lock.
“Staff from Nottingham City Council will be at the event allocating City Cards from their mobile travel centre, which will be parked at the side of the bike shed.
“Once inside the shed your bike should be secured to one of the bike racks with a strong metal bike lock , preferably the D type.”
