Description: Neither Champaign nor Urbana requires bicycle registration, but both offer it as a service. Registration helps with recovery if your bike is stolen. To register a bike, you provide the serial number, make, model and a description.
In Champaign, register your bike at any of the fire stations. In Urbana, do it at the Finance Department in the City Building, 400 S. Vine St. There is no charge.
The University of Illinois strongly urges students to register bikes at the Public Safety Building at the corner of Springfield and Goodwin avenues. Again, there is no charge.
