Bike protection: secure it, lock it, register it
  • Lock it up
    Secure the bicycle frame and wheels to a sturdy, fixed object like a bike rack or a metal post. Or store it in a dedicated, secure bicycle locker.
  • Get a good lock
    We recommend a quality ‘U-style’ lock. Chain and cable locks are easily cut in seconds by someone with the right tool.
  • Invest in a good lock
    There is an illegal market for stolen high-end bicycle parts.
  • Register your ride
    The city of La Crosse requires bicycles ridden within city limits to be registered. To register, you will need the bicycle make, model, and serial number.
