Did you get a new bicycle from Santa for Christmas? Want to take steps to protect your bike from theft or loss? Then get yourself down to The Bike Shed in Rothesay this Saturday.

Police in Rothesay have teamed up with shop owner David Kilpatrick to offer a bike marking service at the store in East Princes Street from 10am until 12 noon this Saturday, January 10.

Officers will mark your bike with your postcode, free of charge, using an ultraviolet pen. All you need to do is bring proof of ownership and your address, and you’ll receive a record of your bike to keep in the event of it being lost or stolen.

Advice will also be on offer from police on how to keep your bicycle safe from would-be thieves.

A similar event will be held at the same venue from 10am to 12 noon on Saturday, January 17.
