In an article in the Guardian, a former crack addict who supported his habit for 13 years by stealing bikes provides advice on how to prevent having your bike stolen. A few of his tips include:
- Use a good lock
- Lock through the frame and wheels
- Park your bike where there are people around
- Ride an inexpensive bike (expensive bikes are targeted by thieves)
- If you ride an expensive bike, bring it inside with you
No news there, though it’s an interesting article nonetheless.
