I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but my bike was stolen a couple of weeks ago. I’m not terribly surprised, given that it was locked outside my building at work for a week and a half while I was too busy after-hours to go pick it up (and it was locked with an ancient cord lock besides), but still. I hope the person who took it really needed it, because of all the bikes in the world to steal, a crummy old Schwinn isn’t much of a score. (Although it did have newish lights on the front and back, dangit.)
In a strange turn of circumstances, however, I may be receiving a free, new-to-me cruiser this afternoon–I can’t quite believe it, so we’ll see if it’s still available when I go to pick it up after work. Maybe-thanks, Public Safety!
Now I just have to get back into the habit of riding, since I’ve had to drive to work for the last couple of weeks. The route from the new house won’t be all that different from the old one, but I still have to give it a test ride to see how much longer it takes me.
I also have to go buy a new lock–I know most people recommend a U-lock for better safety than a cord lock, but I’m thinking about investing in a TiGr lock. Mike got one when they were Kickstartering the idea and has nothing but good things to say about his, so I’m considering it. Any alternative locking methods I should look into, bike-riding friends?
