I had a good time there - perhaps if you guys are on the end again next year (where the potentially very long walk makes bike theft more tempting), you can take some kind of extra precaution against stolen bikes?
I'm not sure what form this could take, other than to make a short piece of chain & a key lock available to anyone who wants one while they're there. Hopefully, you'd get most of them back. Dunno. Maybe a bike check? That would require someone to "work" the check though.
Just a thought.
Interesting ideas, and having a bike stolen I understand. However I know that theme camp people already have a lot of time and money invested in the camps and taking care of our bikes is not their problem. Plus I'd want the reorient people focusing on keeping me dancing and not worrying about bikes!
There might be some other ways we can address this. One would be to start an e-playa thread specifically devoted to the topic of bike theft...we need to learn what works, what doesn't. At first I was thinking that DPW might be able to build some extra bike racks and have them placed at strategic locations along the esplanade, but the problem happens all over the city so the approach is not the best answer. (could be a partial answer but DPW is swamped as is).
Back to the thread....collect tips on what works, what doesn't and then create a bike security page on the First Timer's Guide and Survival Guides, along with comments in the JRS to get the word out......I might just start the thread after posting this or later this weekend after thinking it out more. Whatever happens, maybe we can cut down on this for 04.
