bike racks outside Woolworths & the Beer Wine & Spirits entrance at Riverton Forum Shopping Centre in Riverton.
some neanderthal has butchered my padlock with what appears to be a pair of boltcutters in an attempt to steal my bike again
There is Video surveillance of the carpark but not the bike racks. I'm going to see centre management in a few days and tell them to install some cameras over the bike racks.
This is getting annoying. I keep my bike but have to replace the lock now. Cable a month ago, lock now
It's not even a fancy bike ffs. Just a base model Giant road bike that is a couple of years old. What do other people do to make thieves look elsewhere?
How important are good looks to you?
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass
not sure I would be allowed to paint the bike matt black or coat it in chocolate
any aesthetic changes need to be removable otherwise I get in trouble
I kind of like how the guy in the video does his painting in the street instead of his own property. Not sure why nobody called the cops on him
Jeeeze, don't have much luck do you? It might be worth considering why your bike is being targeted..

I am always very reluctant to lock my bike up at shopping centres if I can avoid it, and never without first doing a lap around to establish which I believe is going to be the "best" place for me to lock it up. I carry a small combination lock for those times when I need to duck into a toilet or into the local IGA near home, but if I know that I need to stop off at a shopping centre or anywhere that it will be for more than a couple of minutes then I take my U-lock from the office with mem
