Always lock up your bike

Posted 31 August 2016

Bicycles are a common target for thieves on campus day and night.

To help prevent your bike being stolen, Security & Traffic Management recommends following these bike safety tips:

  • Use a 'D' shaped style hardened steel lock to secure your bike. Chain locks can be broken easily with manual tools
  • Secure your bike on designated bike racks only, in a well-lit area. Do not leave your bike attached to railings at building entrances or chained to fire stairs
  • Do not leave your bike outside overnight or over the weekend
  • Keep details of your bike, including make, model number, colour, serial number, take a photo
  • If your bike is stolen, report it to the Security Services Office at Gate 2.

Remember under NSW legislation a bicycle is considered to be a vehicle. Cyclists are subject to the same road rules as other vehicles in NSW and must obey the laws on traffic signals and street signs. Failing to obey road or bicycle rules may result in a fine.
