Bike Marking Event launches In Beeston North

On Saturday 15 January 2022, The Mayor of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae, accompanied by Beeston North Ward Councillors Barbara and Steve Carr will be holding a bicycle marking event on Beeston Fields Recreation Ground.

The event is the first in a series of Borough-wide initiatives forming part of Broxtowe Borough Council’s new Bike Theft Prevention Plan.

The event is the first in a series of Borough-wide initiatives forming part of Broxtowe Borough Council’s new Bike Theft Prevention Plan.

Using the UK’s national, police approved, bicycle marking and registration scheme; BikeRegister, children and adults can come along between 11am and 1pm and get their bike registered for free.

The scheme works by adding your bike to a national database, which now has over one million bicycles registered. You will receive a laminated, tamper resistant warning label with a unique QR code that can be scanned instantly with a smart phone. 

Registering on BikeRegister(Opens in a New Window) means you could be reunited with your bike in the event of it being stolen, and the labelling acts as a deterrent to would-be thieves.

Just bring your bike and a smart phone and we’ll do the rest.
