Bike theft happens every day, but a few simple precautions can keep your bike safe.
How to lock up your bicycle
Step 1: Find a permanent, sturdy fixture like a bike rack.
Step 2: Put the back wheel of the bike close to the rack. Loop the U-lock through the back wheel of the bicycle and the frame of the bicycle, and lock the U-lock around the bike rack.
IF YOU HAVE A CABLE OR CHAIN...
Step 3: Take the cable or chain lock and thread it through the front wheel and through the locked U-lock, and lock the cable or chain around the bike rack.
IF YOU HAVE A 2ND U-LOCK...
Step 3: Loop the U-lock through the front wheel of the bicycle and the frame of the bicycle, and lock the U-lock around the bike rack.
With all of the different options for cables, chains and U-Locks it may feel a little overwhelming. Stopping into your local beginner-friendly bike shop to speak with an expert is a great way to make sure you're safe and secure every time you ride.
