Let's stop bike theft together.
All cyclists and bike owners (not only) in the Netherlands face it. The demon that shall not be named. A problem that is ignored until it breaks our everyday life. Bike theft.
Over 500,000 bikes get stolen each year in the Netherlands, causing € Millions in financial damage and even much more in personal value damage.
After repeatedly being victims of bike theft ourselves, we have talked to police, representatives of Ministry of Security and Justice, many dedicated city and province representatives, politicians and a plenty of cycling associations to get to the core of the problem.
And so, Fiets ID was born.
So, why do we actually do this? Because
IMAGINE NETHERLANDS WITHOUT BIKE THEFT.
More people biking. Everyone riding awesome bikes. Services for bikers get cheaper and better, and so do the bikes.
But mainly, no more fear of losing your beloved bike and tens or hundreds of Euros you invested into it.
We're building a platform which will enable every single one of us to fight the bike theft and help the victims of this crime to get back what's theirs.
We are proudly based in the Netherlands, the cycling capital of the world.
