Loosing a bicycle sucks. Absolutely sucks. Takes a bit of sunshine out of you.

A recent spurt of bike thefts across the country has got us thinking that we need a local bike registry where we can start tracking stolen bicycles across India.

Making a website is simple (and our first step of course). What we do after that to ensure bike theft is actively discouraged and how we connect with local communities and bike shops to ensure stolen bikes are actively re-united with their owners is what is really interesting.

At the moment the prototype sits at http://bumsonthesaddle.com/stolen_bikes

    Perhaps it will be good to include how bike got stolen. Was it parked somewhere and had disappeared when the owner came back? Or was it stolen from the house premises? Or something else? This information may help avoid future thefts as owners can take specific precautions.

    Thanks!
