California bicycle licenses will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 6, at the César Chávez bike swap, 1221 Anderson Road.
When a bike is registered, its complete description — including serial and license numbers — is entered into a system of bike identification and recovery. If a bike is stolen, individuals may readily get the information needed to file a theft report. Law enforcement officers across the state access this list to identify and recover stolen property.
A new license costs $10 and renewals are $5. No proof of ownership is required, and at this event, only cash or checks are acceptable for payment. Licenses sold at the event are valid through Dec. 31, 2016.
Bicycle licenses also may be purchased on the UC Davis campus between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at Transportation and Parking Services or at B&L Bike Shop, Ken’s Bike-Ski-Board and the Green Bicycle Depot during their regular hours. All bicycles operated on the UCD campus must have a current California bicycle registration.
