We care about your safety. Follow these tips to remain safe when biking on campus.
- Consider using a U-Bolt-style lock for your bicycle. Attach the lock through a wheel, the frame, and a stationary object such as a bicycle rack.
- Register your bicycle’s make, model, and serial number with Campus Safety and Security.
- Engrave your bicycle to deter thieves and to help in identifying and returning a stolen bicycle. Mark your identification in two different locations on non-removable parts.
- Report any suspicious behavior you see around the bicycle racks. Never leave your bicycle unattended anywhere.
- Be sure that the bicycle cannot be lifted over what you are locking it to.
- For bicycles with quick-release wheels, lock both wheels and the frame to a secure structure.
- Secure components such as lights, seat posts with quick release levers, and saddle bags or remove them.
- Make the lock as awkward as possible to get at.
- Do not leave your bicycle locked to racks on campus over the summer unless you are attending the university.
- Before you walk away from your bicycle, do a quick check that your lock is really secure and there are no easily removable items.
- Make sure that in parking and locking your bicycle you are not impeding pedestrian or handicap access.
- Keep a record of your bicycle’s make, model, color, and frame number.
