KELOWNA - The consistent sunny and warm weather means Kelowna is teeming with cyclists out enjoying the fresh air. All the bikes in the city also means an uptick in bike thefts.

Bike thefts are a problem in Kelowna. Facebook community groups are filled with posts from people claiming their bicycles were stolen in the dead of night or in broad daylight. People post the description of the bike, along with the date, time, and location of its theft, and hope the thief has the good manners to return it; failing that, the descriptions help citizens recognize the stolen property.

A recent video posted to YouTube by the City of Kelowna channel (which is not affiliated with the actual City of Kelowna) is asking people to analyze a collection of bikes to see if any of them look familiar.

The video shows an assortment of bikes jumbled together. Some are locked while others rest together in a pile. The video description says the lot is at 2639 Highway 97 North.

If you've recently had your bike stolen, check out the video below to see if you recognize it.
