Bike Index helps people recover their stolen bikes, educates on the prevention of theft, and builds a community through its website. And it's a non-profit organization that released its software as open source.
Steve Piercy's ambassadorship is sponsored by GEARs
Bike Index allows us to verify details about the bike, theft details, police file number and contact info for the owner. We can also share the registry directly to Law Enforcement to expedite the recovery process.
Educating kids about how to lock their bikes and register them is an important part of growing bike commuters!
I believe community involvement makes a difference in crime and Bike Index is the easiest way to get involved and actually make a difference
Bike Index provides ease of use and security of mind. The simplicity of design makes it effective.
If a person loses their bike there is such a feeling of loss but when its recovered there is such a feeling of renewal and restoration. That is the reason I promote Bike Index
As the founder of Bicycle Security Advisors—who’s mission is to provide communities with the best information on how to keep bikes safely parked and protected from theft—Bike Index is unequivocally the most effective registry you can use.
Bike Index isn't the only internet bike registry, but it's the only one that works and I firmly believe it's a direct result of how it was designed.
After a couple of recoveries, I got hooked. It was so nice to be able to return some of these bikes to people who really love them.
