Have You Seen Our Bike?
Oh no! Project 529’s sweet, sweet ride has gone missing… And we want the help of our community to find it.
Update 7/27: Our little pink Schwinn back safe and sound at 529 HQ thanks to tips from the community! But, we’re still playing, now with little pink’s big brother, a shiny yellow Huffy commuter. Check it out, and spot the bike, and be entered to win some great prizes!
Bicycle theft is an epidemic, and it’s time we, as a community, come together to squelch it’s free reign. That’s why we developed the 529 Garage website and app: to enable local cyclists to work together to help spot stolen bikes and get them back to their rightful owners.
To kick things off, we’ve put together a scavenger hunt to show off a little of what our service can do, so keep your eyes peeled for our missing bike for a chance to win some t-shirts, hats and more!
Start by checking out the Missing Bike Report on the 529 Garage website or download the 529 Garage iPhone app* and find the “Official Contest Bike” on our Hot Sheet, where you’ll find a few tips about where our bike may have ended up.
Once you spot our missing bike around town, use the website or app to send us a tip. Be sure to include your email address, the Project 529 Shield ID #, and a photo of our discovered bike so we can reward you if you win**. All three must be included to be considered an eligible entry.
The first person to send a tip (as well as 5 more randomly selected entries) will receive a reward of bike registration kits, ‘bike thieves suck’ Ts, 529 Garage hats, or other choice items from our war-on-bike-thieves stash.
Help us grow our anti-bike theft brigade and may the best detectives win!
