Free Cycle Security Marking in Ruddington

Ruddington cyclists wishing to get their bikes marked usually have to travel to a coding session at Rushcliffe Arena. However, this weekend, it’s available right here!

From 9am to 12noon on Saturday September 5th, Rushcliffe Borough Council ‘Community Safety Team’ and Nottinghamshire Police are hosting a stall at Ruddington Village Market. Cyclists can get their bikes security marked and registered with BikeRegister for FREE and also receive advice on crime prevention advice for burglary and vehicle crime.

BikeRegister is the UK’s national cycle database and is the preferred bike marking system of Nottinghamshire Police. They explain that bike marking is a permanent visible deterrent from bike theft – and registering a bike makes it traceable and therefore more difficult to sell on. The true owners’ identity is marked and can help cyclists be reunited with their bike if retrieved.

Security of a bike starts with a strong lock, and a limited supply of free ‘D’ locks will be available on a first come first served basis at Saturday morning’s stall.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods Cllr Rob Inglis (pictured above with {LtoR} PCSO Jodie Turner, RBC Community Safety Project Officer Judith Brown and PCSO Lee Sampson) says: “It’s pleasing to continue our work with Nottinghamshire Police to deliver these important sessions that can make such a big difference in preventing bike, house and vehicle crime in our communities. Thank you to co-ordinators at Ruddington Centre Village Partnership for welcoming us aboard to the market and we invite cyclists and residents alike to visit the stall and find out more.”

Neighbourhood Police Sergeant Steve Robinson says: “It’s great to be able work closely work with Rushcliffe Borough Council to deliver these important sessions that can make such a big difference in preventing bike, house and vehicle crime in our communities. We are looking forward to engaging with cyclists and residents alike.”

Ruddington Centre Village Partnership chairman Mike Ader says: “This is a great initiative which will help all bike owners in the village. I’m delighted they can join us at our Ruddington Village Market on September 5th which promises to be another highly successful event with over 40 fantastic stalls.

September’s Ruddington Village Market is being held on The Green this Saturday between 9.00am and 12.30pm. You can read the full details >>HERE<<.
