Online Bicycle Registration
Registering your bike with University Police provides a record of the bike that can be searched by Police if your bike is found, enhancing your chances of getting a lost or stolen bike back. It also provides you with a way to retrieve bike information at a later time if needed for insurance or other reasons.
Locating your Bicycle Serial Number
The best chance at recovering a stolen bicycle is having a registered serial number. These numbers are used by police across the nation.
Where to Find It
The majority of serial numbers are located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet. Turn your bike upside down and record the number.
If there is no serial number near the cranks, you should check other common places including the front headset or rear stays. This diagram indicates five of the most common serial number locations.
