Bike Theft & Recovery

The UT-Austin police will stamp your ID number onto your bike for free on Wednesdays from 9:00-4:00 in front of Gregory Gym at 21st & Speedway. You don't have to be a student; it's open to everyone. In addition to stamping your license number, they'll put a registration sticker on the down tube. Sure, the registration sticker would be easy for a thief to remove, but the point is that when thieves even SEE the registration sticker, they may avoid stealing your bike because they know that it's registered and has your ID number stamped into it, so it'll be harder to sell.

Note that some cyclists are wary about having their bikes registered, because then if they get harassed by the police for any reason, the police could ID them with the state ID # etched into their bike.

We have a separate article about bike theft and recovery.
