The Nassau County Police Department put out a list of tips to prevent bicycle thefts. 3. Use a bike rack – sign poles are not as secure;

4. Lock your bike in well-lit and well-traveled areas;

5. When not in use – overnight for example – consider storing the bike inside a secure location, instead of outside;

6. Take easily removed items with you (like lights, quick-release seat posts); 8. Write down your serial number. It’s also very helpful to have a picture of your bicycle and original sales receipt, if possible. If your bike gets stolen this will help police find it, and will help prove ownership.
