Recent Reports

Welcome to the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry

Here's how it works...

1. Your bike gets stolen. Oh no!

2. You file a theft report, and let us know about your stolen bike.

3. We receive your report. After reviewing it, we will post it on the main page. We mainly review reports to weed out spam and make minor editorial corrections to formatting.

4. Your theft report, including your bike's photo, last known location, and date of theft, are posted on our site. Your report also goes into our searchable statistics builder and is shown on our report map. And, if you're lucky, someone might see your bike and contact you directly and return your bike.


Time is of the essence! Please post your report ASAP for the best chance of getting your bike back, even if you don't yet have all the information. You can contact us via email at [email protected] at any time to add to or change your listing.

Important: See Mr Bike's tips on I.D.-ing your bike before it gets stolen!

Search tip: Be aware indexing happens nightly so it's recommended that you eyeball at least the first 10 or 12 listings in addition to using the "search" feature.

Feel free to browse recovered bike listings for inspiring tales of bike/owner reunions.

Incident Description: 
I store my bike on a designated bike rack in the back of my building. Though this is a restricted access area (you need a key FOB to enter), the bike rack is in a corridor. A storefront under construction, the elevator, and back door all use this corridor, so there's a lot of traffic. I learned my bike was stolen when I looked for it on a sunny day and it was gone. I assume it was taken by someone using the corridor--either a construction worker or someone who tailgated their way in the building. Tailgating is a huge problem at my apartment building.
