Bicycles happen to be a popular mode of transportation around Charleston. For one, they traverse these narrow streets easily. Secondly, you don’t have to worry about finding a parking space, or paying for said space. Unfortunately, bikes are also pretty popular among those with minimal ethical codes. In a recent email sent to the College of Charleston community, Public Safety reported six bicycle thefts in two weeks.
To keep your bike, you need to do two things: invest in a U-Bolt and a cable lock; secure your bike to an immovable object. Public Safety included the below graphic to give you an idea of the best way to secure your bike.
Every year, the Student Government Association and the Department of Public Safety host a bike auction. This year’s auction just happens to be tomorrow (Wednesday, September 2). It starts at 11:00 a.m. in Physician’s Promenade and will run until 1:00. If you don’t have a bike, you can find a really good deal at the auction tomorrow.
