An ordinance regulating the use of bicycles within the City of Decorah, Iowa, providing for the registration and licensing thereof, and fixing penalties for violation:
27.1 License required—Every person living within the City of Decorah, Iowa, who owns a bicycle, shall cause the ownership thereof to be registered at the office of the Police Department.
In accordance with the above city ordinance, students are advised to register and license their bicycles with the Decorah Police Department. Registration will benefit the owner in the event of theft. Due to a partnership between Luther and the City of Decorah, students and staff may register their bikes on campus at no cost. Registration is available at the Backyard Wilderness Pursuits office in the Dahl Centennial Union.
Bicyclists and moped/scooter operators are required to use the bike storage racks located throughout the campus. The use of a heavy-duty lock system is recommended to discourage theft. Luther regulations prohibit attachment to trees, posts, signs, handrails or handicapped ramps. Any bicycle, moped or scooter that blocks or interferes with handicapped or emergency pathways may be removed.
