How and Where to Lock Your Bicycle
Two Minutes a Bicyclist Can't Afford to Miss
Lock your bicycle in a bike rack, when available.
Where there are no bike racks, lock your bicycle to something that cannot be easily broken. Bike thieves have been known to steal bicycles, lock and all, and break the lock later.
Remember not to park your bicycle where it would block access for persons with disabilities.
Lock your bicycle in a well-lit, well traveled area. Dark alleys and other out of the way places give thieves time to work.
Buy the best lock you can afford. Keep the lock and/or cable off the ground so a thief cannot use the ground for leverage.
Think about others. Will your bicycle block a doorway, stairs, crosswalk, ramp or other access, or will it generally be in the way of pedestrians?
Keep your bicycle locked indoors overnight, if possible.
