I Heart My Bike is back and linked up with Bike Index
If you missed your chance to take that romantic picture of you and your bike last season, no worries! We’re starting up the photo booth again for the season and it will be more effective than before. We are linking up with Bike Index, a national organization that is committed to making bicycle registration easy, while making it harder for someone to get away with stealing your bike.
We have recovered 6 bikes within the first year of the I <3 My Bike program! Protect your bike, claim your love for it, and step into the I <3 My Bike Photo Booth.
Preventing bike theft is the goal of BikePGH’s I <3 My Bike program, so it made perfect sense to connect with the Bike Index. Join us this season to get your photo taken in the I <3 My Bike photo booth, and enter your information into the database. BikePGH will still act as your local support for getting the word out if your bike is stolen, but you can also alert the Bike Index about the theft in case your bike makes its way outside of Pittsburgh.
Here are some upcoming I <3 My Bike Events:
- Thursday, April 17th, 2014 5pm – 7pm

Our Drive With Care Indiegogo campaign still has $20,000 to raise in a few days! With your help we can make it. Please consider donating to make sure this message gets sent loud and clear to people on the other side of the windshield, “Bike riders are your friends, family, and neighbors. Please Drive With Care.”
