Bike Parking Tips

There are thousands of sidewalk bike racks available for public use in the City of Long Beach. Business owners can request a complimentary bike rack for their business using the Bike Rack Request Form. In addition to registering your bike, here are a few basic tips on how to keep your bike secure while parked in the public right-of-way:

  1. Always lock your bike. Never leave your bike unlocked, even for a minute.
  2. Always use a u-lock or chain. Invest in a high-quality lock to supplement it.
  3. Secure the frame and wheels to a bike rack. For extra security, use a cable to secure the front wheel, or remove and lock it with the frame and rear wheel.
  4. Keep it inside overnight and your bike will be alright.
