Anti-bike theft program – FREE for CN Cycle for CHEO participants
Ottawa Police Service (OPS), Citizens for Safe Cycling (Bike Ottawa) and Safer Roads Ottawa have partnered with 529 Garage, a bike registration app that connects cyclists to each other in the greater Ottawa area in an effort to reduce bike thefts. This app is FREE to everyone who registers in the 2021 CN Cycle for CHEO and will alert other bicyclists when a bike is stolen or missing by sending out a broadcast to all users. It also redirects to the OPS reporting site where cyclists can report and claim their bike if it’s recovered. Use your smartphone, tablet or register online at 529 Garage. For more tips on securing your bike click here for info from OPS.
