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.

How to Report a Bike Theft

If your bike has been stolen or lost, it's important to report it to the Nanaimo RCMP. This helps our community understand the scope of the problem, as well as makes it easier to interrupt criminal behaviour. Please have your make, model, color and serial number on hand when reporting your bike lost or stolen to the RCMP.

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.
