This silver mountain bike is a Giant Terrago. It is one of four bikes used by Kensington and Chelsea Parks Police in London. The only emergency warning equipment fitted is a white light and an air horn. The bottle can be pressurised using a normal cycle tyre pump. The red plate then folds down and operates the very loud horn (see inset).
