Safety in (Serial) Numbers …
Planning on enjoying lots of long bike rides this summer? If so, be sure to keep a close eye on your set of wheels! Bikes are one of the top hot items that get stolen every year.
So what do you do if you’re one of the unlucky cyclists who’s robbed of your ride? First of all, be sure to keep the serial number on your bike and have it written down somewhere for quick reference. That way, if it’s stolen, law enforcement agencies have information that can help them track it down in their databases. And once you realize your bike’s gone, get on the phone right away and let the police know. They rely on the public to be proactive about calling them and telling them about stolen items. These two basic steps can really make a difference in whether or not you get your bike back.
