Does anyone feel reluctant to take their bike to certain places?
I haven't gone to the movies in a long time. The only theaters remaining where I live are the huge multiplexes that seem to attract huge gangs of ne'er-do-wells. Yes, I said it. I'm an old codger.
I do have a beater that has taken all sorts of abuse, and I wouldn't care if it were stolen or vandalized. What I do care about is the possibility of having to call a cab (which would cost more than what the beater's worth).
I don't have the same concerns about leaving my bike where I work, because it's a university with a huge bike culture, but those places on the outskirts that have no public transportation just give me the willies.
Oh, the movie I so want to see on opening day: Pineapple Express. I may just drive.
