Bike Index is Here! - Online Bicycle Registry

Bike Index makes bicycle registration easy

The Bicycle Program is excited to announce the rollout of a new bicycle registration system on campus, Bike Index. Bike Index is a non-profit bike registry and the most widely used and successful bicycle registration service in the world! Transportation Services believes that bike registration should not be difficult, and we are excited to incorporate this online bike database into our registration process. We hope you find registering your bike with Bike Index to be easy, valuable, and above all, more reason to ride. 

Helping you keep your bike safe from theft

A registered bike is less likely to be stolen than an unregistered bike. To a bike thief, it is just easier to steal and sell a bike that is untraceable. Registering your bike with Bike Index database means joining a network of over 673,000 cataloged bikes, 1,240 community partners, and tens of thousands of daily searches. Protect your bike and get registered!
