In Vancouver alone 5 – 6 bikes are reported stolen every day and only a few get returned to their owners when recovered by police.
Why so few? Because many owners don’t record and share their bike serial number and description.
Help defend against the bike theft epidemic by:
- Registering your bike with 529 Garage bike registry for free – it takes only five minutes!
- Getting a 529 Garage decal to discourage thieves
- Locking your bike properly
In the event your bike goes missing, you’ll have everything you need to activate the police and community to help recover your bike.
This will significantly improve the chances of stolen bikes being reunited with their owners.
