Displaying a valid registration shield helps protect your bike from theft and facilitates the recovery of lost or stolen bikes. It also allows WashU to contact the owners of bikes that were impounded due to improper parking, like blocking ADA access.
USE A U-LOCK! Protect your bike by locking its frame to a bike rack with a U-Lock! You can buy a Kryptonite U-Lock at cost from WUPD for $25.
Bikes should always be locked and parked upright at bike racks; Parking at and/or locking to railings, ramps, trees, benches, or anywhere except a bike rack is prohibited.
