untitled-1Before you store your bike away for the winter – register it with the police!

All North Vancouver bike owners are encouraged to register their bike with NVGYBB (North Van Get Your Bike Back) program.

Police in North Vancouver have recently received several complaints of stolen bikes that were stored in garages and garden sheds. One stolen bike was valued at over $4000. The odds of getting your stolen bike back are greatly increased when it is registered in the police data system.

North Vancouver RCMP has had great success in returning stolen bikes to their rightful owners when the owners had previously taken the time to register them with NVGYBB. Police were able to check and verify that the bike, still in the bike thief’s possession, was theirs (see press release). All police agencies across BC have access to this information through the shared police data system.

Whether you ride your bike all year round or store it for the winter – take a few minutes and send us your bikes particulars along with a picture, said Cpl. Richard De Jong of the North Vancouver RCMP. There is peace of mind in knowing that when your bike is registered it will help in getting it back and support attaining criminal charges if ever it is stolen. There is no cost to you to register your bike.
