Cyclists can have their bikes etched with a security code free of charge, at an event at Central Beds’ Travel Choices Hub, Dunstable.

After a spate of cycle thefts, the Lock It Or Lose It Bike Security Day aims to help foil would-be thieves.

The event runs from 12noon-3pm, with security etching from 1pm, on Saturday, February 8, at the hub, in Ashton Square.

Cyclists can have their bike etched by police, photographed and registered online.

There will also be advice on the best types of locks to use and how to lock up cycles securely.
