Police officers in Sudbury will be security marking bicycles free of charge in a bid to reduce crime.
The marking event takes place on Thursday, May 7, on the Market Hill outside the Town Hall, from 10am to 2pm.
Members of the public will be able to bring along their bicycles to have them security marked, as well as talking to police officers for general safety advice.
Among the advice police are offering are to make sure cyclists use heavy-duty bike locks, avoid isolated places but locking bikes where potential thieves can be seen, and avoid locking bikes in the same place regularly.
Police are also advising cyclists to lock bikes to an immovable object, make locks and chains hard to move, and keep any gap between the lock and the bike small.
