We take bike theft seriously here at BikePortland.

We’ve been working on the issue — both online and off — since 2006. To learn more about the problem, browse our hundreds of articles on the topic. This page will give you a few tips in case you’ve become a victim – and a few that will help prevent theft in the first place.

    1. Invest in the highest quality lock you can afford.  We recommend heavy-duty U-locks, heavy-gauge chains, or handcuff-style locks.
    2. Always lock your bike to a secure, fixed object.
    3. Only lock your bike in a well-lit, well-traveled area.
    4. If possible, lock your bike indoors.
    5. Avoid using quick-release skewers on wheels and saddles. Replace existing quick-releases with bolts or locking skewers.
With proper documentation you increase the odds of recovering your bicycle. You can find your serial number on the bottom of your bike where the pedals come together. Take pictures of your whole bike, you with the bike and any parts that are unique to your bike. Finally, please fill out the form below and save it and the photos for your records.
