Lincoln Police have been urging cyclists to help them prevent the theft of bikes. The police say that they have had to auction off recovered bikes as 50% of owners cannot identify their own bikes. They are asking that people note down the serial or frame numbers of their bikes.
A lot of the bikes that are recovered by the police are worth £400-£500. Rebbeca Stanworth spoke to Roger Hobby the chairman of the velo cycling club about the prevention of theft of bikes.
