Police are appealing for witnesses to the thefts or anyone with information about the whereabouts of the stolen bikes to contact them.
Neighbourhood Inspector Louise Cass-Williams said: “We’re paying extra attention to the area in an effort to prevent offences and gather information about the thefts.
“Cyclists should make sure they use good quality locks on their bikes, a D-lock is preferable and more than one should be used, to make it difficult for opportunist thieves.
“Bikes should be registered along with a photograph, for free with immobilise.com, which means if it’s stolen and then later recovered it can be returned to its rightful owner.
“Anyone who witnessed the thefts or has information about the person or people responsible should get in touch with police at the earliest opportunity.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 ext 69191, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
