I recently moved in to the Petworth/Brightwood area and recently had my bike stolen out of my yard. This is the first time I’ve had anything stolen in the city but know that its unfortunately common. Most concerning though was how close the bike was to the entrance to my house (via the back alley) and how comfortable someone had to be to come that close to the home.
Are these instances frequent in this area? What are others doing to prevent these kind of instances?”
Ed. Note: What’s that locking method that folks have mentioned in the past?
