Bike marking with Camcycle & Cambridgeshire Police

Bike Marking with the police in Cambridge Market SquareIn an effort to help fight cycle crime, Camcycle and Cambridgeshire Police have joined forces to get as many bikes marked as possible. Registering your bike is an easy way of deterring thieves and, if your bike is stolen and recovered by the police, registration helps them to prove ownership, return your bike to you and prosecute the thief.

 

How can I help?

Are you willing to volunteer some time to support our work on the prevention of cycle crime? Volunteers typically sign up for 1-2 hours to help at our bike marking events and you can register to join our cycle marking volunteers online.

If you’re a school, business or other community group, please get in touch to find out how to help your people get their bikes marked, either through sponsorship or hosting your own event: contact@camcycle.org.uk

If you’ve been a victim of cycle theft and had your bike returned thanks to the bike marking initiative, please get in touch and tell us about it via: contact@camcycle.org.uk

Finally, you can help publicise these events by sharing the details with friends, neighbours and colleagues!

We are offering free bike marking events and below is a list of those planned in 2024. It speeds things up if you know the make and model of your bike and its frame number, though all you need to do is turn up with your bike. If you’d like a bike marking event in your area but don’t see one here, please get in touch and we will do our best to add it to our schedule.
