And evidently you’ll have to use more than a normal chain and padlock, as there’s a very determined bike thief on the loose. Jonathan K sent this to the Squire Park email list:
Two bikes were stolen from our carport yesterday between 4:45 and 6:45pm while we were out. One belonged to my neighbor’s kid … the other was my wife’s silver 2001 Specialized Sirrus mountain/road hybrid. Her bike was locked with a chain and padlock but the padlock was cut; I believe entry and exit to the gated complex (2001 E Yesler Way) was gained through a gate on Yesler that was left ajar (intentionally or unintentionally) . One of the bikes was unrideable, so I assume they were both taken in a vehicle. If anyone has any information please [email or call me]
Contact Us if you have any info on the bikes, and we’ll get it to Jonathan.
One of my saddest days in the CD was Labor Day 2002 when someone broke into my basement and made away with my beloved yellow Cannondale F2000. Haven’t been on a serious mountain biking ride since. **sniff**
or bye-cycle. It looks like locking them up doesn’t work anymore. I guess they should be brought inside, or dig a moat around your bike and fill it with fire. That might help with some of the dimly-lit blocks too.
