From our friends at Bike Happy:
Every year, a bike theft epidemic rages from May through October, claiming thousands of bicycles in Seattle.
If your bike is ever stolen, you will need a record of its serial number, a description, and photos — and a community of caring people looking out for your bike. That’s what Bike Index provides. It’s independent, free, and easy.
More than 70% of returned stolen bikes in Seattle is thanks to Bike Index. If enough bikes get registered, we can both recover more bikes and prevent the bike theft epidemic. List your bike on BikeIndex.org.
