Our Story


In 2013, we set out to create a sustainable program that helps reduce bike theft, promote cycling, and make cities and campuses more bike friendly. The result is the 529 Garage.

Over the last 2 decades, bike theft in North America has grown to epidemic proportions - affecting about 2 million riders each year. Beyond the half-billion dollar cycling black market, many stolen bikes are involved in secondary crimes - serving as a modern “getaway vehicle” for criminals.

Our strategy is simple - galvanize riders, shops, police, schools and cities with a common set of tools that allow communities to become better organized than the criminals. Cities that we have joined forces with have seen meaningful, double-digit results in the first two years.

We are a purpose, not profit-driven company, motivated to make a meaningful dent in this epidemic. Join us on our quest by registering your bike and getting your community signed up with our program.
