The best defense against bike theft is a U-shaped style lock!
Bicycles remain a high theft item on campus. In fact thus far this month, October 2016, we have had 13 bike thefts on our campus. The majority of the thefts involved cable locks being cut.
To prevent the theft of your bicycle, we recommend the use of a Kryptonite U-shaped lock to best protect your bicycle from theft. These locks are not easily cut with bolt-cutters, a tool often used to facilitate bike theft.
The U-shaped style bicycle locks are sold in most sporting and bicycle stores and range between $20 and $70 depending on the brand you select. The horse-shoe style lock is definitely worth the investment.
