The police is running the scheme with three local shops - Future Cycles on Park Road, Evans Cycles on Crouch End Hill and MiCycle on Ferme Park Road.

There, shoppers can visit throughout the day to register their bikes - which will make recovering them were they to be stolen easier.

Marking your bike takes two minutes, and is also a deterrent to thieves.

PC Chris Allen told the Ham&High: “The reasons we are doing this are simple - it’s to stop people’s bikes being stolen and it also helps us stop other crimes like burglary and the theft of vehicles. It’s a two-fold thing.

“Summer holidays always see a higher number of crimes related to bikes, so we want to publicise this and get people to get bikes registered now. Kids will be out on bikes much more, and people will be buying new bikes to go on cycling holidays.”
