May 1998

Always lock your bike

My bike was stolen on the day before Good Friday (9 April 1998). Normally I religiously bolted my bike to something whenever I left it. I  nevertheless talked myself into thinking it would be relatively safe, stuck under the stairs in the foyer of the office building I work at. This is a classic case of security being undermined by because a small inconvenience experienced daily seems like a big inconvenience after a while. Fellow cyclists, learn from my misfortune!
