The CU Bicycle Program has partnered with the CU Boulder Police Department and local bike lock manufacturer Rocky Mounts to help prevent bike theft on campus by giving away free U locks in exchange for your cable locks. 96% of all bikes stolen on campus were locked up using either a cable lock or no lock at all. Using a high quality U lock is an easy way to protect your bike from theft. 

Dear staffs of CU environment center
"I visited the UMC bicycle station this afternoon and the nice staff there provided me a secure U-lock in place of my unsafe cable lock. I can not believe the U-lock was provided to me for free. Thank you for giving me the U-lock and thank you guys for all you have done in making CU a bicycle friendly place and in making riding bicycles in Boulder so convenient and pleasant. Best regards, Youjun Hu"

Stop by either of the CU Boulder Bike Stations to trade in your used cable lock for a FREE U lock. No strings attached!
