How to Lock Your Bike
It's best to:
- Lock frame and wheels together as shown
- Take your lights and helmet with you
Avoid leaving your bike away from home overnight. If you absolutely must, try to:
- Choose a large and secure rack that's visible from a major street
- Avoid dark and concealed locations
- Remove the seat and take it with you, especially if it's a quick-release mechanism

Register Your Bike with Project 529
It's not required to register your bike at OSU, but it's a good idea. Registering your bike makes it easier for law enforcement agencies to return it to you if it's stolen. Both OSU's Department of Public Safety and the Corvallis Police Department use Project 529, a national online bike registration, reporting, and recovery site.
When you register your bike, it's best if you know your bike's serial number. Read more about how to find your bike's serial number.
Why Bike Lockers?
Bike lockers are more secure than bike racks, especially if your bike will be locked on campus overnight. Lockers protect both your bike and any unsecured parts such as the wheels and seat. Bike lockers also protect bikes from the elements.
