Besides locking up your bicycle, registering your ride with BikeIndex.org gives you the best shot at getting your bike back if it is ever stolen.
This free, community-driven service ensures that your bike’s identifying information will always be available anytime you need it. And once it’s listed, it can be identified in just seconds by any bike shop, pawn shop, police department or private buyer using the Bike Index database.
Please note: this registry is not affiliated with law enforcement. If your bike is stolen, you should report it to the OSU-Cascades Department of Public Safety and the Bend Police Department. You can reach Public Safety at 541-322-3110 and submit an online report to the Bend PD via this online form.
OSU-Cascades partnered with Zagster to operate a bike share program for students and employees. Unfortunately that program did not survive the pandemic in spring 2020 and Zagster declared bankruptcy. We are working to develop a new shared transportation service to be launched in spring 2021.
Employees have access to two electric bicycles (e-bikes) for personal and work-related trips during the workday. Please review e-bike rules and return a signed copy of the waiver of liability form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
