Theft Prevention Tips

  • Lock your bike at all times, even if you only leave your bike for a minute.
  • Use a strong lock (such as a U-lock) and attach the lock through the frame and rims of the bike.
  • Lock your bike to immovable and permanent objects, preferably a bike rack.
  • Do not lock your bike to trees, posts, fences, etc.
  • Use two locks (e.g. a U-lock and a cable lock) to significantly minimize the risk of theft.
  • Secure all quick-release components.
