Bike Theft Prevention

  • Always lock your bike.
  • Bring an inexpensive bike to campus.
  • For maximum protection, use a U-lock.
  • If you have quick-release hubs, don't forget to lock your wheels and seatpost.
  • Park in a well-traveled, well-lit area.
  • Write down your bike's serial number for matching in case of theft.
  • Alert the police of suspicious activity.

Register your property through the City of Minneapolis
