GMU encourages students to register their bikes

George Mason University (GMU) wants more students to register their bikes on campus. As an incentive, they are giving away a free OnGuard U-Lock. See the info below from Michael Lagana of the Mason Cycling Club:
Mason has a bicycle registration program that allows anyone who is affiliated with this campus and has a G number (it's our personal identifier with the school) to register their bike and receive a free OnGuard U-Lock ($40 value), a personalized registration sticker, and a free VDOT guide to rules of the road for cyclists. I've made this little three-step, how-to guide for anyone who would like to register. More info can be found at

Is there any downside to this?
There is a potential downside. If registration is required, then it could discourage people from riding bikes. I asked that question and was told there are no plans to make registration a requirement. As you have probably heard, the City of Alexandria may require bike registration and payment of a fee, which I think is a bad idea.
