Protect your bike!

Saskatoon Police Services has notified us that the number of bike thefts in our city have increased recently.  Here are a few reminders from the SPS website

Tips for Securing Your Bike

  • Use a high quality lock – don’t rely on a cable lock.
  • Lock a wheel and the frame to a secure structure. Don’t lock only the wheel as they can be easily removed from the bicycle.
  • Most bicycles parked outdoors are not secured properly. Never leave your bike outside overnight.
  • Never leave your bicycle unlocked in your garage, bike cage, balcony or on your vehicle. Many bikes are taken from these locations.
  • Adding a secondary lock can enhance the security of your bicycle.

You can also register your bicycles with Saskatoon Police Services:  http://saskatoonpolice.ca/obr/

Cable locks or thin chain link fences can easily be cut.  Be sure to use a U-shaped lock and remind your child to lock his/her bike to a secure post.
