I will be moving from Europe to Florida in two weeks and will reside in Wellington. I will work in Lake Worth (6 miles from appartment). As I will not have a car I want to use a bicycle for daily commute. Moreover, I want to use my bike also for going to the mall (2-3 miles), beach etc. My question is, is it safe to use a bike there? I want to spend max. $500 on my bike (any suggestions are very welcome), can I lock it in front of the mall or somewhere at the beach without having to worry about it being stolen?
