PCSO 2299 David Freeman said: “Cycle crime in the county is on the increase and the number of high value cycles being stolen as a result of burglary is on the increase.

“We hope to promote security awareness and assist with crime reduction in our communities. Our vision is to promote cycle security and property marking.

“Our latest addition will be new cycle marking kits (from Bike Register), that will be available at the events, to work in support of our on-going commitment to immobitag system currently being used.”
