This Spring our U-lock giveaway lasted longer. Normally we are sold out in two days. This time we still had locks on the third day. Maybe that means that more and more of our riders already have U-locks. Either way, the one’s that came seemed very appreciative. U-locks make a big difference on our campus. The coil locks are just asking for trouble. Remember that theft on campus is highest at the beginning of the fall semester. Get your u-lock and get it early. Then make sure that you lock to a sturdy rack and not to a bush. Finally, get registered. If you lock freezes up we can cut it for you if you are registered. Plus, the more registrants, the more justification we have for our spending and our special programs. Plus remember, it is free and required.
