What an "every-rich" motto for the Bike week initiative in the UK, which is held yearly in June all over the country!
While zipping to work this morning I bumped into a stall advertising the initiative in bike-friendly Fitzroy Sq. By the stall were an employee from Camden council and an officer by the Met Police.
My dear old Pinncle also has a flashy sticker flagging thieves that my bike is tagged, and not worth their effort.
Most impressive of all the police officer confidently knows stat.s about the share of bike stolen out of the total no. of bikes in town, which the police adjusts for underreporting to the police w.r.t. all bikes that are stolen in town. This share is in the range 20-30%.
Two hat tips:
1) Go and get your bike tagged! You can search the closest stall by postcode in http://www.bikeweek.org.uk/
2) Listen to London while you read top 10 bike maintenance tips !
