Giving test rides for bike sale. How to avoid theft?

What are ways to avoid potential theft?

Do you check or hold their ID? Have them put up collateral? Only allow it if they arrive in a car by themselves?

Found an iPad. Except it was as shamed up and damaged as it could possibly be while still technically being in one piece. Amazingly I still got $20 for it on eBay. One thing you can't deny about...

I strava all my bike rides. I like promoting the idea of cycling for both fitness, and errand riding, and the idea of combining the two, which is a great way to save time and money.

I like the current gen Apple Earpods. They dont completely block out sound like the earbuds that have a tight earplug like fit. So i can hear cars, horns, and sirens.

I inspect the inside and outside of the tire and hub for any debis that might re-puncture the tube

I inflate...

Do you confront drivers that gave you the right hook?

When I say confront, I don't mean insulting or threatening them. But giving them a piece of your mind.

If the right hook wasn't too close, I just shrug it off. And of course 90% of the time, they...

Best public bike racks?

Leave it to a nice public library to provide a bike rack that's actually well designed.

Do you pick stuff off the ground? If so, what have you found?

We cyclists go for long distances, often in high population areas, and we pass things that car drivers will not see or stop for.

I ride by a golf course, and often see golf balls in the gutter. I...

I'd be concerned about all that sand getting on the chain and creating extra wear on the drivetrain. I ride on a beach trail a few yards away from the sand and I still get sand stuck to my bike.
