My wife and I bought bikes three months ago, and we'd really like to take them on our annual camping trip to the redwoods. But I'm having trouble envisioning how we're going to secure them against theft. I want to take them, but only if I have some confidence they will be as protected as they are when we lock them before going into the grocery store. Right now I have no such confidence. And yet I don't want to leave them at home if somebody else can come up with a good idea.
There's nothing in the campsite to which we could attach our Kryptonite locks. There's a heavy wooden picnic table and a few young redwood trees on which we could use the 5/8-inch cable-lock; but I wouldn't want to rely solely on a cable-lock. I would prefer not to remove the wheels and seatposts every day to stow the bikes in the backseat of our Honda Accord, assuming they would fit. Our tent is big enough (barely) that we could stow both bikes inside, even at night; but during the day, if we're away from camp without our bikes, I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving them in the tent if our only safeguard against temptation, besides locking the bikes together, were the honor system that seems to have kept our sleeping bags and camp stove secure every year.
Any campers out there who've surmounted this problem? I would appreciate any ideas.
