The City of Kwinana has partnered with Honeywood Primary School to encourage Bikelinc registrations in a pilot project expected to be rolled out in other schools.
Over 100 students and staff at Honeywood Primary School registered their bikes with Bikelinc by joining in the school’s annual Ride to School event.
Bikelinc is a police-monitored database where people can register the serial numbers of their bikes, scooters and gophers so their property can be returned by Police in the event they are recovered after being stolen.
According to Bikelinc, more than 9000 bikes are stolen annually in WA alone, and this figure increases by about 64 per cent each year.

Honeywod Primary School holds an annual ‘dress up your bike day’ and chose this day to partner with the City of Kwinana which provided fruit and drinks and rolled out a red carpet.
The City of Kwinana is now hoping to roll it out at other local schools to encourage sign ups to Bikelinc.
