KRON4’s Stanley Roberts tells us that bike thefts at BART stations have increased significantly in the past two years. Employees of the SF Bike Coalition stop a bike theft in its tracks in front of Westfield Mall. Mission Mission, in a rare happy ending, stayed on the case of a stolen bike that reappeared on craigslist until it was returned to its owner.
While the SFBC has a little theft prevention section, it, of course, doesn’t say anything like “if you leave your bike here you’re asking for it” or “people who lock up there bike here are likely to lose it.” But we know there have got to be better and worse places to leave your bike — we’re not blaming the victims, just saying that there must be some places that are just easier pickings, right?
So we’re asking you: Where’s the best place in SF to get your bike stolen? Let’s hear it in the comments.
