Bicycle registrations are required by a city ordinance. Registration helps to identify your bike if it is recovered after being stolen, and failure to register your bicycle can result in a $50 fine. The UW also requires all bikes on campus to be registered with the City of Madison or another municipality.

To register your bicycle you need to know the serial number, manufacturer, model, frame type, bicycle type, wheel size, number of speeds, and frame size and color. Cost is $10 and is good for four years.
