Bicycle owners in Saskatoon are being reminded to record their serial numbers and keep their rides locked up when they’re not being used.
Saskatoon police said in a Thursday release 303 bikes have been reported stolen since the beginning of May.
They noted many of the thefts are linked to break and enters, prompting a reminder for people to ensure their garages and sheds are locked and secured.
Police are also recommending bicycle owners never leave their bikes unlocked outside overnight.
Owners are also being urged to record their serial numbers and submit them to police, as they work on creating a Saskatoon bicycle database.
The registry is part of the #GetYourBikeBack campaign, allowing police to identify the owners of recovered bikes more easily.
Once completed, users will be able to access their bicycle information through the Saskatoon police website or mobile app.
Police said it’s also best to take photos of your bicycle and record the make, model, type and colour.
