Love At First Bike31 Jul 2015
BIKEREGISTER is delighted to be able to claim its first love match! Kate Bailey, a Crime Prevention Officer with Northamptonshire Police met her partner Andy when she was bike marking at a charity cycle event at Silverstone Grand Prix circuit on 30th July 2009.
Kate recalls: “Andy was participating in the event and wanted his bike
marked. He asked me if I would be back in the area at some point as he had
two more bikes at home that he would like marked. I told him that I would be
marking bikes again the following week at a police station in Northampton and
that if he could bring the bikes there I would mark them for him.
“To cut a long story short, he turned up the following week, I marked
his bikes and we went out afterwards for a drink. We have been together ever
since – six years now!”
Kate has taken up cycling and is the proud owner of two bikes (both
marked) and Andy now has three bikes (all marked).
On hearing of their story, BikeRegister produced a special set of heart-shaped
high security TESA labels for the couple to put on the frames of their bikes to
commemorate the date they met.
