The Heat went out for a ride after BARELY beating the Spurs bench last night. Would coach Pop ride a bike too in SA? :)
It's the Holiday Season, So Bike Owners -- Please Be Vigilant!
As my friend +Fred Moyer said to me online today, "This is the time of year Bad Santa and his evil elves make their rounds." He made the suggestion to remind folks to be on the alert when you're not at home and your possessions are left unattended.
So if you're going out of town, be extra careful about making sure your personal property is safe - and that includes your bicycles! There's been a rash of thefts lately with thieves breaking into garages and stealing unlocked bicycles.
If you don't have an alarm system, try and secure your garage so that no one can break-in without creating a lot of noise / attention.
If you have to leave your bikes in a garage, lock them securely. There's also been recent incidents of thieves cutting frames to steal bike parts, so be mindful of that as well.
Better yet, bring them inside while you're away and secure them in a safe place.
Let your neighbors know you'll be out of town, and ask them to keep an eye on your place if possible. Have them report any suspicious activity.
If you have any other tips, please share them!

“After a time, habituated to spending so many hours a day on my bike, I became less and less interested in my friends. My wheel had now become my one and only friend. I could rely on it, which is more than I could say about my buddies. It’s too bad no one ever photographed me with my friend. I would give anything now to know what we looked like.”

"I see a girl going somewhere on a bicycle, and I draw a whole group of girls, all of them on the way somewhere." -Tejubehan
"At its heart, however, the story is really a feminist story — a vision for women’s liberation in a culture with oppressive gender norms and limiting social expectations. In envisioning the woman of the city — biking, driving, flying — Tejubehan is really envisioning what it might be like to live in a world where to be female means to be free to move and free to just be..."
