Bicycle Registration Program

Bicycle theft and resale is a lucrative business.  As the price for new bicycles increase each year, their resale value also increases.  Hundreds of bicycles are recovered on the Outer Banks annually, with little to no information to locate the owner.  Registration provides law enforcement the information necessary to retrieve and return property to the rightful owner as well as aid in the prosecution of criminals who steal them.
