here in Middletown ,I had 8 count em 8 bikes stolen in one year, but since last winter in november Ive had the bike canopy, I leave it everywhere unlocked, except the library, and even overnight at my apartment. I think its too bulky and obvious for anyone to steal, after all there are only two bike canopies in the Middletown area to date.
Is anyone interested in funding a non-violent guerilla science project around the subject of bike theft and who is responsible?
Just asking. I think 400 george washingtons could teach us a thing or two that would be difficult to learn otherwise.
But not to be community un-spirited, I have neon duct tape on my saddle and plastic plants and a little bird nativity scene on my handlebars. Survived being unlocked in a busy intersection once for many hours, but looking at it scientifically this anecdote really doesn't tell us much specific.
