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!

*The required version of our iPhone app is currently awaiting Apple’s approval for the app store. In the meantime, you can participate on our website. We’ll make a big announcement when the new iPhone version is available and ready to play with, but you can download the current version and register your own bike today.
**By submitting a tip with your email address, you give us permission to contact you if you are a winner. We won’t automatically add you to our mailing list… but we hope you sign up for our service, register your own bikes and become a part of the 529 Community!
