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 UMPD Valuables Registry or ePortfolio
