Lothian and Borders Police are promoting a cycle marking scheme to improve cycle security….The marking is intended to deter theft. It also involves a database, which matches bikes with their rightful owners if a bike is recovered by the police following a theft.
The police are offering the bikeregister products – see www.bikeregister.com for full details.
If you attend any of the Police’s summer bike marking events you can get a significant discount on normal bikeregister prices and they will do the marking for you. Prices for bike marking are £5 (normally £10.95) and for marking plus datatag, £16 (normally £20.95). The listing of events, which includes the Spokes / City of Edinburgh Council Bike Breakfast, is below.
