There are steps that you can take to minimize the possibility of your bicycle being stolen.

  • Always lock your bicycle to a solid object (fence post, designated bicycle lock location)
  • If you store your bicycle in a shed or garage, ensure that the doors are secured

If your bicycle is stolen, you can increase your chance of recovery by keeping the serial number and bicycle description in a safe place. Providing this information to a reporting officer will allow unique information to be included in the criminal report.

If you are a resident in the state of Colorado, you can register your bicycle with the Denver Police Department. The registration process asks for specific information about you and the bicycle. The information is available to street officers and can be used to quickly identify the owner of a bicycle.
