Bicycle Registration Today in Oakhurst!

IMG_9452The Decatur Police Department will be registering bicycles in front of Oakhurst Market (650 East Lake Drive, Decatur, GA 30030) this Friday, August 14, 2015 from 5pm-7pm.

Bicycles are a commonly stolen item and are not registered like vehicles. Bicycle registration includes providing owner contact information, having the manufacturer and serial number documented and having a numbered decal applied to and a photo taken of your bicycle.  The process takes just a few minutes.  Registering your bicycle allows officers to look up recovered bicycles and contact the owner and allows for us to quickly look up the needed information about your bicycle if it were to be stolen.  The information is kept in a secured database only accessible by police department staff.  We will also register scooters that do not meet the size requirements for state tag registration.

*There is NO CHARGE to register your bicycle or scooter.

Fairies in the Garden, Woodlands Garden, 2 until 5 pm. Information is here. We went to this in the past and it was awesome!! Not only do you feel like you have left the city while wandering the garden, but the little Fairie Homes are so creative and stoke the imagination. Consider walking or biking over as parking is limited. Or park at Westchester School and walk over.

Decatur Craft Beer Festival, Information is here. I believe there are still some VIP tickets available.

Sunday, October 19:
RideWell Bike Festival at Holy Trinity Parish, 1 pm until 6 pm. Information is here.

What else do you know of that is happening in Decatur this weekend? Feel free to comment…..

Bike Registration and Children’s Bike Rodeo May 17!

Do you want to have your bicycle registered with the police department in case it is lost or stolen?

If so, please stop by the Children’s Bike Rodeo Saturday, May 17, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Callaway parking lot, located at the corner of West Trinity Place and Commerce Drive in downtown Decatur. Decatur Police will record the identifying information for your bicycle, apply a decal and photograph your bicycle so that in the event it is stolen, the needed information will be on file. Also, in the event the bicycle is found, it can be reunited with its owner. The process takes just a few minutes.

Even if you are not attending the bike rodeo, please bring your bicycles by and get them registered.
