High gas prices encourage more people to ride their bicycles on errands. 

I have gone grocery shopping on my bicycle several times this year.  I always lock my bike and the baskets as well because they are expensive.

Until Friday, I have never had a problem. My husband rode with me today and we left our bikes standing upright at the bike racks. We locked them together and locked the baskets to the bicycle, one basket hooked to each side on the rear rack.  To our surprise, when we came out, my bike was on his bike and the baskets had been pulled off of the bike and were laying on the ground, both on the same side. 

You can see that they are still locked. I am sending this to The Log to bring awareness to bikers in Destin.  Make sure you lock everything up and enjoy the ride!  It's a great place to ride!
