Shield your bike

The tamper-resistant 529 Shield acts as a deterrent, warning would-be thieves to keep their paws off your bike, and making it easier to find you if your bike is recovered.

To complete your registration, please visit the Department of Public Safety at Cascade Hall to pick up the free tamper-resistant Shield decal for your bike. Your Shield decal contains a unique ID which acts like a license plate for your bike. The Shield signals that the bike is registered/protected- and will be harder to sell if it is stolen.

How to Report a Bike Theft

If your bike has been stolen, it's important to report it to law enforcement - this helps the police better understand the scope of the problem. It will also be necessary for an insurance claim or to collect it from any law enforcement agency that recovers the bike. To report your bike, follow the steps below:

Step 1

Start an alert on your bike on the 529 Garage website or app.
If your bike isn't registered, register it first with all the information that you have about your bike, and then start the alert.
