Technology Can Help Keep Your Bike Secure: Aside from locking your bicycle, there are other smart and affordable steps you can take to protect your property. University policy prohibits bringing bikes into buildings but provides fixed bike racks in many locations around campus. Use these racks to securely lock your bicycle. You may also want to consider a GPS tracker connected to your smart phone, Bluetooth-enabled chains or wireless anti-theft remotes – an internet search will provide seemingly endless choices for anti-theft devices. Registering your bike is another smart tip to keep your bike safe. Learn more on the I-Safety Tip of the Week website.
