Bike Theft- A Eugene Tradition

14 01 2016

As you may already know, Eugene is known for bike theft.  We have all either had or know someone that has had an entire bike or pieces of a bike stolen.  It’s learned quickly a cable lock is as effective as a zip tie, and even a u-lock can be broken if given enough time alone to work.  Below is a listing of the top 10 highest reported bike theft spots for 2015.  Info from webikeeugene.org via the Eugene Police Commission.

Never take your bike’s safety for granted.  Use a U-lock.  Park in well-lit areas.  Don’t leave accessories on the bike.  Lock your wheels. Know your serial # and register your bike. (register your bike).
