> NBR registration kits can be purchased at area bicycle shops. You can
> also register your bike online at www.nationalbikeregistry.com or by
> calling 1-800-848-BIKE. Please note: MPD no longer registers
> bicycles at

> Three different registration options are available through NBR:
> $10 (single bicycle) - 10 years of coverage for an individual bike
> $25 (single bicycle) - 30 year registration, transferable when you
> replace your bike
> $25 (family registration) - 10 year registration for up to 5 bicycles
> located at a single address
> What should I do if my bike is stolen?
> As always, you should immediately file a police report with MPD. Alert
> them to the fact that your bicycle is registered in the NBR database
> provide them with the manufacture's serial number. MPD will then be
> to search for and attempt to recover the stolen bicycle.
