Don't vandalize my bicycle, please.
Last night, after enjoying the evening class in my favorite yoga studio (Yoga District, best in town!), I came out to notice that my bicycle had been vandalized. I had left it locked, like all other evenings, just to find that both front and read drop outs (basically, like a car's axle) had been taken. I had to walk all the way home, pushing my bike while wondering "who would vandalize a bicycle?" .
Truth be told, I love the neighborhood. I am a huge fan of T street with Yoga and Rustik, and Bloomingdale Liquors and Windows Cafe. But what about the cars that speed and stop? What about the groups of men that drink alcohol in plain views? What about the rest of us?
I really want T street to flourish... didn't I read somewhere that a Day Care center is
coming next to Rustik? It makes me wonder if improving lighting or other measures will improve safety and bring more shoppers to the area. And, heck ... more bicyclists like myself.
Other than venting to this email list, I'm not sure what to do. A report to the police would be ridiculous... but, could someone give me a tip on who to contact to report on the ongoing problems? Feel free to extend my concerns to your neighborhood associations.
