Registering Your Bike Registering Your Bike

If a bike is stolen from the street, a car or home, the owner needs the serial number to report the theft to the police. Most people don't keep this number handy. However, when a bicycle is registered the police can recall information quickly from the computer. The registration records are cross-referenced by name as well as by serial number and registration number.

What we do

Campus Safety Officers will photograph your bike, record its make and serial number, and your contact information, and store it on our database–at no charge. That same information will become immediately available to law enforcement authorities should you report your bike missing in the future. Also, when you register your bike with us, we will provide you with a voucher to use at the Campus Bookstore to obtain a FREE U-Lock to help you protect your bike from theft. By having this information on file, the opportunity to find and recover your bike after it is stolen is greatly improved.

If you would also like to register your bike with the National Bike Registry.

Why we do this

  • Theft Deterrence. Thieves are less likely to steal a registered bike since its owner can easily be identified. When you register your bicycle with the National Bike Registry, it can be recovered anywhere in the US and traced back to you.
  • Recovered Bikes Returned to Owners. Registering your bike greatly increases the likelihood it will be returned to you if recovered. Bicycles that are registered have a much greater chance of being returned to you if they are lost or stolen and then recovered; bicycles that are not registered have a limited chance of being returned to you if they are recovered.
  • Identification of Rider. Bicycle Registration also aids in the identification of the bicycle owner in case of an accident. Many bicyclists don't carry identification with them. What would happen if you became involved in a bike crash? It could take hours for emergency personnel to make positive identification and contact someone for you. If your child's bicycle is registered, you can be contacted quickly. Do yourself a favor – register your bicycle(s) today.
