A Sad Story

My husband Dave is a regular volunteer at the West End Cultural Centre. It provides affordable rehearsal and performance space for local and touring musicians and offers free arts programs to inner city youth.
On Friday night he rode his bike to the West End Cultural Centre as he always does, and locked it up before going inside for his volunteer shift. When he came out at the end of the evening his back bike tire had been stolen. A kind fellow volunteer gave him and his crippled bike a ride home. 
bikeI know there have been lots of bike thefts in the city this summer, including folks who have had bikes stolen right out of their locked garages.
It is unfortunate. I wonder what’s behind the rash of thefts and what might be a practical solution to the problem.  Dave will be taking his bike inside in the future when he volunteers at the West End, that is after he gets a new tire for his bike.
