Found: Kryptonite Lock Key

Pass this on to fellow ASU cyclists.

I found a bike lock key on the Tempe campus at the bike racks directly in front of the Computing Commons. If you lost one and want to check it out, it has a serial number for identification.

P.S. It’s kinda dirty. Not my fault. I saw it pretty much lodged under the metal rack and at first, thought it was mine.

I walked over to the bike racks and choose chose a spot to lock up. After securing the bike frame to a rack with a Kryptonite U-lock, I considered its safety for only a second and walked off to catch the train. Read more
