If a bike is stolen, 529 Garage assists police in returning stolen bikes efficiently to their rightful owners, saving thousands of dollars in police resources and loss of product for Prince George residents. The program can be accessed online and through a smartphone application.

With 3,000 Prince George cyclists registering their bikes in four years, the Great Big Bike Registry has a goal of registering 500 bikes.

The registration process is free for everyone. Volunteers will follow all provincial health guidelines regarding COVID-19 and will wear facemasks or face coverings and gloves.
