BIKE MARKING FROM THE POLICE AND MEET HAVERING CYCLISTS

police bike marking

Starting on the 1th February 2014 and running the first Saturday of every month, the Police will security mark your bike for free at Romford Market.

Havering Cyclists will also be helping out so come and meet us to talk about anything cycling.

Registering your bike helps police and retailers identify and verify the legitimate owner of bikes that have been stolen or are being resold. Security marking your bike deters potential thieves as your bike can be easily traced if it is stolen.
