POLICE in Ely are urging cyclists to help ward off thieves by getting their bikes marked.
Officers and will be holding a free bike-marking event at Market Square, in Ely, between 4pm and 8pm on Thursday.
PCSO Daniel Stewart said: “By encouraging people to register their bikes on Immobilise we hope to stay ahead of the game and stop bike theft.
“Immobilise is simple to use and it only takes a couple of minutes to register your property.
“If a registered bike is stolen and then recovered, it is likely to be quickly reunited with its owner and police will have a better chance of prosecuting the thief.”
