Register Your Bike
Registering your bicycle will not prevent your bicycle from being stolen, but it may make it more difficult to sell and easier to recover if it is stolen. Below are several registration options:
- Bike Index – Bike Index is a free online service that allows you to store and update important identifying information about your bike.
- National Bike Registry – The National Bike Registry is a paid service that allows you to register your bike and receive a tamper-resistant label to put on your bicycle.
- Florida State University – Students, staff, and faculty at Florida State University can register their bicycles with FSUPD. Information about this program and other bicycle facilities and services is available from FSU Transportation and Parking Services.
Report a Crash
- If you are involved in a crash that results in an emergency, call 911 immediately.
- If you are involved in a crash that is not an emergency, but requires the assistance of a police officer (such as a non-emergency that involves an intoxicated driver or hit-and-run), call (850) 606-5800.
- If you are involved in a crash that is not an emergency and does not require the assistance of a police officer, you can report the crash online with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
Why report crashes?
Reporting crashes, even when they are minor, is important. The information and statistics related to crashes that involve bicyclists helps us understand bicycling conditions in our community and helps us plan enhancements and facilities to help improve these conditions.
Report a Stolen Bicycle
If you are a victim of bicycle theft, you can report the incident online with the Tallahassee Police Department. You can also report a stolen bike to Bike Index, even if you did not register it prior to the theft. Bike Index also offers information on How Not to Buy a Stolen Bike (PDF).
The Bicycle Workgroup
The Bicycle Workgroup twelve citizen volunteers who dedicate their time to assist with bike-related projects, improvements and events. In coordination with Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Department staff, they provide input on current projects and assists in developing recommendations on cycling related topics. For more information, please visit the Joint Bicycle Working Group website.
