Registered My Bikes For Campus Safety
If you've been unlucky enough to ever have a bike stolen (I've found myself in this position a couple of times, unfortunately) you know that the first thing you do is look for avenues of recourse. You scramble to get information dispersed and returned as fast as possible, because the longer your bike is gone, the less chance you'll ever see it again. This app could be your beacon of light in that moment, and I'd highly recommend registering your whips and applying the stickers.
Having said that...lock your bike up. Use a U-lock. Through the rear wheel and the rear triangle. Maybe consider a small cable lock for the front wheel, or locking skewers. If you have a nice seat, figure that out, too. Don't leave your bike locked overnight in low-traffic areas. Honestly, once your bike is stolen, you'll probably never see it again, app or not. So. Just lock your bike up.
My stolen bike was recovered because of Project 529!
My locked bike was stolen and I had very low hopes for its recovery. I registered it with Project 529 anyway, just in case, thinking that at the very least it would be recorded as a statistic. Within ONE DAY, I was contacted by the Portland police that they had found my bike! I had filed a police report too, but the report hadn’t even gone through their system yet by the time they recovered the bike. The officer said he used the Project 529 alert. Luckily I had my bike’s serial number (remember to write that down!) and I had taken a picture with the bike, and I had added those to the alert. Thank you for this amazing service!
Some one finally did something!
I hope this app works because the thefts have to stop! I like how it's set up to get results! And the police are using it!
