Just heard about a spate of bold, business-hours bike thefts right at the Lincoln Square Athletic club on Lincoln Ave. at Leland. The thieves are coming with grinders and making off with bikes - last night at 8pm, so high traffic, and big glass windows aren't deterrents.
Too bad because it's one of the business area's only large bunch of bike racks...
Anyway, keep an eye out and call 911 if you see anything, but also, be extra careful when locking up around there.
People are so wrapped up into themselves that they don't question certain people with grinders!
How to keep your bike safe.
Great tips, but a grinder will defeat all attempts! the best is to take your bike inside, if possible!
The video did suggest bringing your bike inside whenever possible.
