Steps to Catalog Your Bicycle In Case of Bike Theft!

People’s bikes get stolen EVERY SINGLE DAY.  While a sturdy lock can protect against this, if your garage or shed are broken into you should be prepared to make a police report and insurance claim!

People’s bikes get stolen EVERY SINGLE DAY.  While a sturdy lock can protect against this, if your garage or shed are broken into you should be prepared to make a police report and insurance claim!

Let’s collect some proof:

1. A PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE

Take your bike out and snap a photo of it IN YOUR HOUSE.
Take another pic of YOU with YOUR BIKE.

2. YOUR BIKE’S SERIAL NUMBER

Bicycle Serial NumberThis is typically found on the bottom bracket of your bike. It will be a series of letters and numbers.

Jot it down or take a nice clear photo of it.

3. (EXTRA CREDIT) Your original receipt

If you have your original receipt, you should snap a photo of this as well.

4. SEND YOURSELF AN EMAIL

Now, send yourself an email with all the information you’ve collected.
You are now ready to make a claim should the need arise.*

5. REGISTER WITH DENVER POLICE DEPARTMENT

Go to bit.ly/1zqhM0Y and register your bike with the Denver police (we have asked Aurora to make one as well!) Now go do it!

*TIPS: You should still lock your bike with a U-lock. Always close your garage door. Never leave your bike “for just a minute” anywhere but inside your house.
