Protect your Bike – Free Registration

  • The 529 Garage app is ground breaking technology that is reducing bike theft throughout North America, and promoting cycling and making cities more bike friendly. 
  • The 529 Garage app presently has over 1.8 million registered users.
  • The program is similar to neighborhood watch for our growing cycling communities.
