Bicycle Licensing and Parking

All bicycles on the UC Davis campus must have a current California Bicycle License.  The current price is $10 for three years, and renewals are $5 and valid for up to three years.  Bicycle licenses increase the likelihood of a stolen bike being returned.  See the TAPS bike website for additional information and licensing locations.
