CYCLISTS are being warned about bike safety after 1,767 machines were reported stolen in Herts in a 12-month period.
But police said there was a drop of bike thefts in the eastern area - which covers Royston and Buntingford - over a period from April last year to April 2006.
In the eastern area the number of bike thefts reported was 699 compared with the previous figure of 724. Figures for North Herts showed 195 bike thefts and in East Herts 173.
Roy Aldwin, manager of the county community safety unit, said it was "disappointing" to see an increase overall in bike thefts. He said that many of the thefts could be avoided.
