Suck It, Bike Thieves

Not a big surprise here: authorities say that bike theft tends to pick up during the summer months. Although trends are not different than those from previous years, there are ways to detain thievery, like investing in a good lock, locking your bike through both the wheels and the frame, and always locking your bike when not in use (seriously). This won’t altogether prevent theft, but registering your bike with the city of Chicago can help with recovering and returning bikes to their rightful owners.
In related news, Chicago is now #2 on Kryptonite’s “Top Ten Worst Cities for Bike Theft,” with the triumphant winner being the city of Philadelphia.
