Bike Marking with British Transport Police

Recently the club was approached by an officer from BTP offering to frame mark all our bikes (for free!) in an effort to defeat the increase in thefts that they are seeing in and around the Merseyrail network.

The marking process uses a special ink to mark the frame, when combined with the National Cycle Database it makes recovery of a stolen bike much more likely, whilst all bikes have unique frame numbers they are hardly ever recorded and in truth often difficult to read (under bottom bracket generally) so an easier and more high tech solution is quite appealing!

BTP have several pre-planned marking dates upcoming:-

Tuesday 25/09/2018 West Kirby station 1630-1800

Tuesday 02/10/2018 New Brighton station 1630-1800

the process takes 10 minutes and is suitable for virtually all frame materials and finishes

See www.bikeregister.com for more details of the product used.
