Bike Recovered Within 3 Hours14 Jul 2013
A bike that had been marked at a rail station in West Sussex and was subsequently stolen, was recovered and reunited with its owner in less than three hours thanks to BikeRegister.
The bike was found abandoned on a pathway on the South Coast by a woman named Mary Briant who was on holiday at a nearby holiday park. Mary had noticed the bright red BikeRegister sticker on the frame and called the hotline number on the sticker.
She was able to quote the make, model, colour and frame number of the bike to one of our support team.
The full registration details of the bike were quickly accessed from our secure database and the real owner, a Mr David Green was found.
The bike was not flagged as stolen on the database as David was unaware at this stage that his bike had even been stolen.
He had left it at West Worthing Station overnight with the intention of collecting it the following day.
Less than three hours after the original call from Mary to our hotline, David was somewhat surprised but delighted to be collecting his bike from her…
