VENTURA, Calif. -

The Ventura police department is encouraging everyone to get their bikes registered.

Police say registering your bike is they way to go because if your bike is stolen, you stand a much better chance of getting it back.

They recommend using a quality locking system whenever you leave or park your bike.

You should also submit a form when there is a transfer of ownership of the bicycle.

To register, call the Resource Center at 805-339-2901.

You can also download the form online at
