STOLEN BIKES NOLA
REPORT • RECOVER • RETURN • REPEAT
SINCE OUR FIRST STOLEN BIKE RECOVERY ON APRIL 11, 2015
REGISTRATION THAT WORKS! - Our partners at Bike Index have created the ultimate national database. When your bike is marked stolen thousands of people are instantly alerted via twitter and Facebook. Buyers of used bikes can quickly check the bike they are considering to see if it is reported.
EVERYONE WINS BUT THE THIEVES!
THE PAYOFF - Any of our members who have been there when a bike is returned to the owner can tell you "This is why we do it !" Take a look at a few of the happy faces.
Note: Check our Rapture Bike page for "found" bikes that have yet to be claimed.
APPRECIATE OUR WORK? - We have a few ways you can help support our mission. Send us a few bucks, buy a t-shirt, or volunteer your time. Our active volunteers are spending their own money to find stolen bikes and we are streched to the limits. We don't have big grants or deep pocket sponsorship so every dollar counts.
LEARN TO LOCK - Cable locks should never be used as a primary means of locking a bike in a New Orleans. (click to see why!) Cheaper and older U-locks can often be broken without any tools. Use a u-lock that costs at least $40.
