Theft Prevention

Theft Prevention

  • When locking a bike, always secure both the frame and quick release wheel to the rack with a lock.
  • Invest in a lock that will provide adequate security in relation to the cost of the bicycle. A $2.00 chain lock on a $1,000 bike is not a wise investment.
  • All bicycles on–campus must be registered with the Office of Parking and Transportation.
  • Keep a record of the bicycle's serial number, make, model, and registration.

If a bicycle is stolen and recovered, or impounded, the owner must be able to provide the serial number or university registration information as proof of ownership.
