Tips For Preventing Bicycle Theft And To Recover It

MARQUETTE, Mich – It’s probably the worst feeling in the world. You come out of home or work to take a bike ride only to find that it’s gone.

A local police department wants to help you keep your bicycle from being stolen.

And, what steps to take if your bike comes up missing.

The Marquette Police Department says you should do three things to keep your bike safe.

First, you should use a quality bike lock, preferably a u-lock style. Lock your bike anytime it’s left unattended.

Second, you should keep a record of your bike’s make, model, color and serial number as well as a picture of it. This will help make it easier to recover the bike in the event that it is stolen.

Lastly, if your bike is stolen, report it immediately to your local police department.
