Riding your bike along winding pathways and down tree-lined streets is one of the pleasures of living in Sacramento. Worrying about having your bicycle stolen is not.
Now, a new online city bike registry should ease fears a bit. It's part of a program to reduce bicycle theft in the city. But City Councilman Steve Hansen says the effort will only be successful if bike riders embrace it, which includes letting the police know if your bike is stolen.
"We can't function in getting the stuff back to folks if they don't report it," Hansen said. "So, really, register your bike, lock it well, park it well and report."
Police say bikes should be parked in a highly visible area and the frame should be secured to a sturdy bike rack with a metal lock.
Hansen said it's hard to tell how big a problem bike theft might be in Sacramento because not many people report the crime to police.
