November 18, 2019

In one of our meetings with LAPD, they recommended a way to help them recover your bike!

It’s called Bike Index and here’s how to use it.

Bike Index is a widely used bike registry that’s fast, secure, and free. All you have to do is go online at and do this:


• Enter the make, color, manufacturer, component information, and serial number
• Note any distinguishing marks such as stickers or tape
• Upload a picture


• Report a lost or stolen bike immediately
• Log the location of theft/disappearance
• Record the police report number

The entire Bike Index community and its partners will be alerted and registered bikes are more likely to be recovered. Register your bike today on
