DENVER — They all have one thing in common: they had their bicycles stolen.
Now, through Facebook, they are banding together to find their bicycles and help other victims find theirs.
The Facebook groups have titles like: “Denver Stolen Bikes.”
Courtney Biehl had her bicycle stolen, back in February, and while she did eventually find it on-line, she is now at the forefront of bringing victims together, as an internet “watchdog.”
“I’d love for you to have a bicycle of your own, but don’t take mine,” she said.
The Denver Police Department has the following tips to keep your bike safe:
- Use a lock
- Register the bicycle
- Put your name or a business card with your information under the seat
