Lethbridge cyclists being reminded of benefits of Bike Index Registry

- Advertisement -

LETHBRIDGE, AB – A reminder that warmer weather usually comes with an increase in bike thefts locally.

With that in mind, Lethbridge Police are encouraging bike owners to register for the free Bike Index program to help deter theft, and ensure that if your bike is ever lost of stolen that it can be returned as soon as possible if it’s found.

It only take minutes to register at BikeIndex.org.

All you need is the serial number, make, model and colour as well as a photo, a description of any distinguishing features and your contact information.

Last year alone, 545 bikes were reported stolen to Lethbridge Police, but 760 were recovered. LPS say those numbers really highlight the importance of the Bike Index and also reporting stolen items to the police right away.

Bike Index stickers, available through Lethbridge Police as well as city stores selling bicycles, are made of a strong, weather-resistant material and are difficult to remove. The stickers can serve as a deterrent by showing the bike is registered and the owner can be identified by simply scanning the code.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
