I went out to the bike racks at the Regional Enterprise Tower last friday and find a note saying that someone had his Trek 7000 stolen from there DURING THE DAY last week. It’s black, with lime green trim. I am not the owner, so don’t have any more details.
This is a well populated, well-lit location, with lots of folks around at all times. Thief was in and out quickly, it seems.
It was an important reminder to me to lock my bike securely – meaning with a U lock – every time. I am parked at that same rack today, but am double locked, with both a U lock and a cable.
We need at least one public use, secure bike parking facility downtown! Anyone interested in helping me work on making it happen?
