Registration is free and is required

Bicycle Identification

If your bike is stolen, its serial number is needed to aid police in its recovery. When a bike is registered with Virginia Tech, the serial number can be cross-referenced with the bike owner’s name, and acts as an independent proof of ownership.

Theft Deterrence

Thieves may be less likely to steal a bike with a registration sticker since its owner can easily be identified. Stolen registered bicycles are posted on both statewide and nationwide crime computers.
