Your Bike Information

why register your bike?

Pacific Northwest law enforcement agencies and UWPD recover thousands of bikes every year, but cannot return them because they do not know who they belong to. By registering your bike with UW and 529 Garage, you'll help law enforcement know it's your bike if it's located.

How to Report a Bike Theft

If your bike has been stolen, it's important to report it to UWPD or SPD. This helps the UW community better understand the scope of the problem, as well as makes it easier to interrupt criminal behavior.

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.
