Register, Recover, and Report
BikeNet is a web and mobile app that empowers cyclists to fight bicycle crime. The mobile app makes registering your bike as simple as posting a photo on instagram. You can report your bike to an activity feed if it gets stolen.
Our goal is to build a system that allows cyclists to register, report, and recover stolen bikes.
Bike theft is more common than you think
Bicycles are easy to steal and sell. Most bikes are not registered making them nearly impossible to recover. In our community alone over $140,000 are stolen. Nationwide it’s over $200 million . Bike thieves are taking advantage of a broken system that is rigged in their favor.
