How do I lock my bike up securely?

Locking your bike securely helps deter theft. Here are some tips to lock your bike:

  • Research different types of bike locks and choose a lock that will deter theft and cannot be easily cut.

  • Use a U-shaped lock and a cable lock, locking your bike at two points on the bike rack to make it more secure.

  • Make sure you are using your lock correctly. 

  • Many bicycles are stolen out of yards or off porches. Ensure that you store your bike securely, even at home.
