I am no exception.
One month after moving into a new house my wife and I awoke to find our garage door open and three bikes missing.
Two of the bikes you can see pictured to the left.
The good news is that bikes are just things and are replaceable. But somehow that does little to ease the anger and loss that you feel when the bikes are gone. As daily bike commuters both my wife and I have a deep personal connection to our bikes. You recall the amount of time it took to build up the bike, the time spent tuning the bike, and the thousands of miles that the bike spent underneath you.
We don’t have this same connection to our car, no, the bike is different. When someone steals your bike, they aren’t just taking your possession but it feels like they are taking part of your family.
