How to Register

1. Locate your bike’s serial number.
In order for the bicycle registration system to be effective, this information must be accurate. The recorded number must be your serial number, not a brand name or model designation. Serial numbers are usually a combination of letters and numbers stamped on the bicycle’s frame. The majority of serial numbers are located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet.
2. Fill out our online registration form (below).
3. Your registration decals will be mailed to supplied address.
After completing the registration process, you will receive an automated receipt via e-mail. 
Properly locking a bike
Registration decals (blue and white tag) are affixed to the bicycle frame in plain view.
4. Apply the decal to your bicycle.
After receiving your decal, place the decal on your bicycle frame as seen in the photo (right). The decal must be visible.
