Protect Your Bike

Bike engraving truckBike theft is the most common crime in Amsterdam, and you pretty much never get your bike back. But here’s something that might change that, an engraving service. For free – so bound to be popular with the Dutch.

You’ll need ID, and they’ll engrave your bike and register it as yours, if your bike is later stolen and recovered it’ll be brought back to your home for no charge.

Great system, shame I didn’t have my bike with me.

I live in Amsterdam, but I'm not Dutch. This blog is about living in the Netherlands. By nature I'm a generalist, so this blog may wander.
