Bicycle Permit (online registration) - The City of Ames recommends bicycle owners in the community register their bikes. To make this program as simple as possible, the City has teamed with Iowa State University to develop one University/City registration tag that is free and non-expiring.
Bicycle owners fill out a short form either in person at the locations listed below or online. Your information is recorded in our system and you receive a sticker with a registration number to affix to your bike. It's that easy! You will need to know the make, model, type of bike, serial number, speeds, color, and style to complete the registration process.
You can register at the following locations in person:
City Finance Department, City Hall, 515 Clark Avenue
Iowa State University, Armory Building, Room 27 or Room 55
University Book Store
Skunk River Cycles
Lincoln Center Hy-Vee Food Store
Or use the link above and your sticker will be mailed to you.
