All bicycles on campus must be registered. Bicycle registration is free. Individual bicycles only need to be registered once. Registration helps the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management to identify owners of lost, stolen or impounded bicycles and to disseminate safety information. Bicycle registration also allows Ithaca College to plan more accurately for improved bicycle parking and bicycle safety. If you see a bike you believe to be abandoned and/or is causing a safety hazard please contact our office at 274-3756. To register your bicycle, please go to http://www.ithaca.edu/sacl/safety/BikeRegistration/.
