15% off BikeRegister security marking kits
Bike security is a serious concern for cyclists and anyone who’s thinking of taking up cycling. Thousands of bikes are stolen every year as thieves believe that bicycle theft is a low-risk, high reward crime. Registering on BikeRegister is a good first step in the fight against bike theft, and means you could be reunited with your bike in the event of it being stolen.
However, it doesn't help make your bike a hard target to thieves.To reduce the chances of becoming a victim of cycle theft, we recommend marking your bike, like with a BikeRegister security marking kit. BikeRegister is used by every UK Police Force and is the preferred bike marking system of the Metropolitan Police Service and British Transport Police.
BikeRegister offers a range of three different marking kits, and as a Cycling UK member you can receive 15% off all BikeRegister products.
