Green Tip: Beat the Bike Thieves
Sadly, bike theft is common at UofL. It’s vital that you lock your bike securely with a u-lock or hardened steel chain run through the frame & wheels. Cable locks are easily cut. Those at HSC have a new option for secure indoor bike storage at the J.D. Nichols Campus for Innovation & Entrepreneurship parking garage at the corner of Jefferson & Preston. Anyone may rent access to a secure bike cage for $10/month or get your own bike locker for $15/mo. To retrieve impounded bikes, call 852-PARK.
