At the Safeway on San Carlos & Race Street the bike rack looks safe. It’s in front of a big open window, open to the parking lot, on a patio with lots of people going in at out at 6:30 PM.
There were two hawkers outside the doors on this Tuesday night, and the store security guard was on duty, yet my bicycle was stolen!
The thief must have taken some time to pick the lock, or used a bolt cutter to separate the steel cable. He left a cheap BMX bicycle, unlocked, there in place of this one.
