Double Deal on Recovered Bikes

Friday, September 8, 2017 @ 5:59 AM

Prince George, B.C- Anyone looking to  get a  bicycle has an opportunity this Saturday to  get  a set of   wheels   with an added bonus.

Stolen  bikes that have been recovered by Prince George RCMP  and which were not registered or  identifiable  in order to return them to the  rightful owner,  will be  up for  auction at AiMHi on Kerry Street  in Prince George.

Recovered bicycles  which  cannot be  returned to the owners,  are given to the folks at AiMHi   where they are refurbished, and  registered with the 529 Garage,  a bicycle registration, reporting and recovery network.  If a bike is registered with 529 Garage, if stolen  and  Police recover it,  there is a very good chance that bike  will be returned to the rightful owner.

“This is a fantastic boost to the Detachment’s bike theft prevention program” says Cpl. Craig Douglass, coordinator of the program in Prince George.  “AiMHi is showing its commitment to this community, its clients and to bicycle owners. Having AiMHi as a partner means that more recovered bikes will be reunited with their owners.”

More than 200 bikes have been registered by AiMHi this year.

The bike sale is set  for 11-4 on Saturday.
