Bicycle Registration and Bicycle Safety

The Irvine Police Department encourages you to register your bicycle for free at project529 online.

Here are some precautions to help protect your bike from being stolen:

  • Always securely lock your bicycle. Use a U-lock, securing both wheels and the frame to a stationary object such as a post, fence, tree, or bike rack. For extra security, add a chain or cable with a good padlock.
  • When your bike is at home, do not leave it in the yard, driveway, patio or open garage. Keep it in a locked garage or storage room or inside the residence.
  • Record the serial number of your bicycle and keep it with the sales receipt and a photograph of the bike.
  • Mark your bicycle with unique number/engraver to deter thieves. This also helps the police in identifying and returning your stolen bike to you.
