Come along register your bike with BikeRegister.

BikeRegister is the UK’s leading online bicycle identification and registration initiative aiming to reduce cycle theft, identify stolen bikes and assist in owner recovery. BikeRegister is used by every UK Police Force.

Once you register with BikeRegister, you will enjoy a number of benefits which mean your bike will be a less attractive target for thieves, and if stolen and recovered by the Police, your bike can easily be returned to you.

Firstly, your details are held on the secure online database, which Police Forces across the country have secure access to. If your bike is stolen you can ’flag’ it as stolen on the database.

BikeRegister also provides protection for buyers and sellers of secondhand bikes. The ownership document is your Log Book and provides proof of ownership for you and any potential buyer. Those considering purchasing a secondhand bike can also check a frame number with the BikeRegister database to confirm it hasn’t been reported stolen.

Registering your bike does not cost anything and gives you the following benefits:

  • Lifetime registration on the BikeRegister database
  • A registration log book, to be used as proof of ownership
  • Secure online access to your account

Avon and Somerset Police will be upstairs at RftS from 11a.00am to 3.00pm.
