Boston’s Stolen Bike Network

There’s a new Bike Sheriff in town! Well, not really, but something pretty darn close. The City of Boston has setup a pretty sophisticated system for dealing with bike theft.

You can register your bike online at Then, if your bike is stolen, the system will alert the police, local bike shops, hospital and school security, and everyone who follows them on Twitter or Facebook. You can also become part of the network by following Stolen Bikes Boston on Twitter or Facebook.

There’s even a Blogspot blog with a complete list of the bikes that have been reported stolen, with descriptions and photos. Check it out here:
