Bicycle thefts aren't just a big-city thing

Report from Bay City News Service:
Palo Alto authorities have noticed an increase in the number of expensive bicycles stolen over the past several months and are working to find those responsible for the thefts, a police spokesman said Friday.

A total of 31 bicycles, each worth $1,000 or more, have been stolen from June through last week, said Agent Dan Ryan. Nine of the 31 bikes were worth between $4,000 and $10,000.

The thefts are taking place throughout the city.

A reminder that, even when we're on organized group rides, don't leave your bicycle unattended -- even someplace where you think thefts "never" happen. In our deteriorating economy, places once thought safe may no longer be that way.
