For doing something like a "Century Ride", I generally won't take a lock. For some restrooms, one can bring the bicycle inside. Others like the blue boxes, one can lean the bike against the box when one goes inside to do one's business. I figure that I'll hear anybody messing with it.

Any ride with organized rest stops seem safe enough with a bunch of like minded cyclists hanging around.

"Frame Locks" are popular in Europe, and I believe Asia, but not used a lot here in the USA.

I believe the key stays in the lock until you lock it and pull it out. It would be good enough to keep someone from hopping on the bike and riding off. I.E. They'd have to carry the bike away, or carry it to a vehicle. They can be used with a thin cable lock if you wish.
