Bay Kiwanis urges bicycle registration
The Bay Village Kiwanis Club, in cooperation with the Bay Village Police Department, is encouraging all residents with bicycles to register them with the Police Department. Registration is free and will insure that your bicycle will be returned to you if it is lost or stolen and turned in to the police.
Each year, the Police Department retrieves 40 to 60 bicycles that go unclaimed. After holding them for some time, they are donated to the Village Bicycle Cooperative, where volunteers inspect, repair and either sell them in the shop or donate them to recognized charities.
If you have lost a bicycle in the last three months, check with the police department to see if they have it.
To register your bicycle, bring it to the Bay Village Police Station, where the details of your bike will be recorded and a Registration Certificate will be adhered to the frame of the bicycle.
The Kiwanis Club is offering a reward to those who register their bicycles between now and Dec. 1. The name of one of those individuals will be drawn and a $100 gift card for Dick’s Sporting Goods will be awarded.
Now is a good time to register that bicycle, before school starts.
