in 2013, Project 529 set out to create a sustainable program that helps reduce bike theft, promotes cycling, and makes cities and campuses more bike-friendly. The result is the 529 Garage.
Their strategy is simple - galvanize riders, shops, police, schools and cities around the globe with a common set of tools that allow communities to become better organized than the criminals. Cities that they have joined forces with have seen meaningful, double-digit results in the first two years.
They are a purpose, not profit-driven company, motivated to make a meaningful dent in this epidemic and to keep you riding. Join them on their quest by registering your bike and getting your community signed up with this program.
- In less than 5 minutes, the 529 Garage Bicycle Registration Kit will help you capture the critical information about your bicycles and establish ownership, helping you maximize your claim with insurance and recovery efforts with police in the event of loss.
- The included 529 Shield sticker provides an additional unique identifier for your bike, making it easy for law enforcement and unknowing buyers trace back to you if it is ever stolen.
- The 529 Shield also warns would-be bike thieves that your bike has a whole community looking out for it.
- 529 Shields are tamper-resistant and weather-resistant.
