It's either a sign of Bend's growth or the coming apocalypse, but bicycle thefts are on the rise. Besides locking up your bicycle, registering your ride with BikeIndex.org gives you the best shot at getting your bike back if it is ever stolen.
This free, community-driven service ensures that your bike’s identifying information will always be available anytime you need it. And once it’s listed, it can be identified in just seconds by any bike shop, pawn shop, police department or private buyer using the Bike Index database.
Please note: this registry is not affiliated with law enforcement. If your bike is stolen, you should always report it to the Bend Police Department. You can do so via this online form.
