If you want to keep your bike a little more safe, you are going to want to head to one of the upcoming bike registry events. The Prince George RCMP will be at different locations this weekend and week where you can go and register your bike with them. The registration only takes about 5 minuets and is absolutely free, just show up with your bike! It is meant to reduce thefts (when someone reports a theft on the app, other riders in the area will be notified) and make it easier for the RCMP to find stolen bikes. Its all done through a program called 529 Garage .For more info on the program itself go to https://project529.com/garage The registry events are:
Saturday August 6th, 8am-4pm, at Otway
Sunday August 7th, 8am-4pm, at Otway
Monday August 8th, 5pm- 8pm at the CN Centre Parking Lot
Wednesday August 10th, 5pm- 8pm, at the PG RCMP Detachment, 455 Victoria Street
It's a quick easy way to register your bike, and limit the chance that it could get stolen.
