BikeRegister (www.bikeregister.com) is a family-run company operated by Selectamark Security Systems plc, a market leader in the field of property marking and asset identification, which offers products including the revolutionary SelectaDNA, a powerful crime reduction system used all over the world (www.selectadna.co.uk). Selectamark was founded in 1985 and is based in South East London. More details can be found on www.selectamark.co.uk
Selectamark purchased BikeRegister in October 2001 and combined the bikeregister.com database with its own Bicycle Security Register (BSR) – which was formed in 1992 – to form the largest bicycle register in the UK. It was pioneered by security expert Jim Brown, Chairman, and is now run by his two sons James Brown, Managing Director, and Jason Brown, Commercial Director.
BikeRegister’s significant growth has really only occurred in the last 8 years. It is now recognised as the National Cycle Database and is used by all UK Police Forces. In January 2021 BikeRegister achieved the significant milestone of achieving over 1 million bikes registered on the database.
In 2012 BikeRegister successfully bid to become London’s official cycle marking and registration scheme, endorsed by the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London. BikeRegister will soon partner with the Metropolitan Police on Phase 2 of the MetTrace project which aims to reduce and deter bike theft and burglaries across London.
In 2015 BikeRegister launched the 1st National Cycle Crime Conference. Now in its 6th year, the conference connects over 30 Police Forces and shares best practice in the fight against cycle theft.
In 2017 BikeRegister produced the National Cycle Crime Survey to provide valuable insight into bike ownership and bike theft statistics. BikeRegister has become a go-to authority on bike theft trends and patterns and has helped inform government on legislation relating to cycle crime. BikeRegister works closely with the UK Police’s National Lead for Cycle Crime.
In 2019 the BikeRegister mobile app was launched. The app is now being used by over 23 Police Forces on thousands of Police-issued mobile devices. Police and Crime Prevention Officers actively use the app to support them with checking bikes using cycle serial or frame numbers. They can also use the app when registering cycles on the database at bike marking events. Over 1,000 searches are made on BikeRegister each day by the police, retailers and members of the public through the website and mobile app.
BikeRegister has released a timeline illustrating key dates in the company history to celebrate reaching 1 million bikes registered on the BikeRegister database.
BikeRegister is proud to partner with many of the UK’s leading cycling brands, insurers, business and associations. BikeRegister has been a partner of Cyclescheme, the leading provider of tax-free bikes for work, for more than 5 years. The partnership has increased the traceability of nearly 200,000 bikes purchased through Cyclescheme, allowing any registered cycle to be identified by police if it is stolen and recovered.
BikeRegister has recently launched a new partnership with specialist cycle insurance provider Bikmo, who are now offering exclusive offers on comprehensive cycle insurance to BikeRegister members.
