Be sure to also save your purchase information and a photograph of your bike. In the event that it is stolen, this will aid in the identification process, getting your bike back to you and riding once again!
Protect Your Bike
- Register your bicycle with the police.
- Purchase a hardened steel U-shaped bike lock or hardened steel chain and padlock.
- Lock your bicycle and both wheels to an immovable object which cannot be easily cut or broken.
Weak, inexpensive locks will not deter a proficient thief. It is pointless to save money by using a cheaply made lock, only to lose an expensive bicycle. To prevent loss, accessories such as lights and bags, etc… should be detached and taken with you when the bicycle is left unattended.
Before riding your bicycle, take steps to protect yourself from injury.
- Wear an approved bicycle safety helmet.
- Use proper lights and reflectors.
- Follow all road safety rules.
