Bike Registration

BIKE THEFT is unfortunately too common of an occurrence on campus. There are a few things you can do to prevent your bike from being stolen. Use a U lock to secure your bike, cable locks can be cut easily with bolt cutters. Buy an inexpensive bike, the bad guys are looking for expensive bikes that they can sell right away.

Another important step you can take is registering your bike. The City of Minneapolis has allowed the University of Minnesota to use their bike registration program. Any University Student, Staff or Faculty member can register their bike. Register here on line.

This helps our police department if you ever have to make a Bike Theft report, we can retrieve your bike serial number. We also recover quite a few stolen/abandoned bikes; registering your bike helps us return the bikes back to their owners.
