Bicyclists will want to make sure they check on their bikes if they're parked in downtown State College.

State College Police will begin removing bicycles that have been determined to be abandoned.

"State College Borough maintains several bike racks to accommodate cyclists who utilize the downtown area," police said in a release. "Many of these bicycle racks have become cluttered with abandoned bicycles making it difficult to utilize the racks."

Bicycles cannot be chained or secured to a street rack for more than 72 hours or a rack inside a municipal parking facility for more than 30 days.

On Monday, police will tag bicycles that are parked in the downtown area. On Friday, any bicycle that has not been checked on by its owner will be removed and impounded.

"If you have a bicycle parked in such a manner State College Police request the bicycle be checked on or removed as soon as possible," police said.

In addition to the time restrictions on parking at bike racks, no bicycle may be secured to signs or trees in the street rights-of-way. Bikes also may not be parked against windows or parking meters or on the main traveled portion of the sidewalk.
