Protect your bike by registering with 529

Jun 15, 2022

Bike thefts are continuing to rise in the Central Okanagan.   The 529 Garage premise is simple, but so effective. Register your bike with the 529 app, take a photo of your bike, record your bike's information and if your bike happens to be stolen... with the press of a button you can alert the local riding community who will watch out for it. It also helps to have the information at hand to share with the police when you file a stolen bike report.  Registered recovered bicycles are far easier for the police to return to their rightful owners.  For more information on the program go to https://project529.com/garage

If you don't have your bike registered yet with Project 529 and live in the Central Okanagan area, message our office (crimetips@rdco.com) and we can set you up with a tamper resistant shield (although the shield is not mandatory, it's certainly a deterrent for thieves).  Our location is 1450 KLO Road in Kelowna.
