Oak Bay is in the process of partnering on a bike registry that will help people recover bikes lost or stolen in Greater Victoria. “It’s going to work well for the region,” Anthony says, advising people to record their bike’s serial number and take a photo of their ride in case it’s stolen.

With a new school year set to begin, Anthony says more bicycles will likely go wayward and eventually be recovered by police. More information on how Oak Bay residents can register their bikes will be announced soon. “The best way to not worry about having to use the registry at all is to make sure you lock up your bike with a good lock,” he says.
