Hi Sherri,

Yes, you are right. This sentence: "Esta bicicleta pertenece al vecino" is also correct for "This bike belongs to the neighbour". However we used this one which means the same: "Esta bicicleta es del vecino", which means literally "This bike is the neighbour's" and here it needs a "de +el" = del. 

I hope this helped.
