The Power of Registration29 Dec 2021
BikeRegister customer Alwen Wiederhold claims that without registering his son's bike to www.bikeregister.com he doesn't think it would have ever been returned.
He said: “My son Alex (pictured) had his bike stolen from work by a disgruntled colleague who had turned up unfit for duty. The colleague (who has now been fired) had argued with someone and then said he was going to take a bike and leave.
Unfortunately, my son had left his bike unlocked because only staff have access to the area where he parked it.
Even though Alex knew who had taken it, the police were not able to find the person.
I reported it as stolen on the BikeRegister website and about two weeks later, a member of the public found Alex’s bike abandoned in a park with a flat tyre.
The person who found the bike contacted BikeRegister after securing it at their home.
I was alerted to the recovery and my son is now delighted to have his bike back.
Without the bike being registered on BikeRegister, I don’t think it would have ever been returned.”
