Bike theft continues to be the No. 1 crime on campus, and we need your help to deter thieves. Don’t become a target. Lock up your bike with a high-quality U-lock. They are more difficult to defeat than cable locks. We’d like to help you get prepared. Enter to win one of 10 free Kryptonite U-locks.

Here’s how to win:

Check out the CU-Boulder Police social media pages where we offer crime alerts, crime prevention tips and other safety information you should know.

- Facebook:  "Like" us at www.facebook.com/CUBoulderPolice and leave a comment on our U-lock giveaway post describing why bike theft prevention is important to you.

- Twitter:  Follow us at www.twitter.com/CUBoulderPolice and send a tweet with @CUBoulderPolice describing why bike theft prevention is important to you.

The contest ends on Monday, Feb. 3, at 9 p.m. We’ll select five winners from both Facebook and Twitter. You must be a current CU-Boulder student and not a previous winner in past U-lock giveaways.

Don't forget to register your bicycle online for free at http://www.colorado.edu/pts/content/register-your-bike-online-free. After logging in, click on "Manage Your Vehicles: Add Bicycle." You’ll get a registration sticker for your frame, and your bike’s serial number will be recorded. If it’s stolen and later located anywhere in the United States, you’ll have a better chance of it being returned to you.

Good luck and stay safe. For more bike safety tips, see http://bit.ly/CUBikeSafety.
