I'm extraordinarily forgetful today. I forgot my bike helmet on the bus and I forgot my bike lock.
More important, though, is my lack of a bike lock. I absolutely need to run some errands tonight before I go home, and I absolutely need a lock since I'll be in the high bike theft area of Palo Alto, California. Does anybody have any ideas? I usually keep a spare in the office, but I took it home the last time I forgot my lock. I'm a little low on cash, too, so I can't really afford to just go and buy another lock.
Speaking of locks, my favorite lock company has a group on Facebook. Kryptonite is currently running a contest on Facebook -- post a photo of a Kryptonite lock to the Facebook group page and the best photo gets you a free Kryptonite Evolution Mini, which is the lock I use every day (when I don't forget it *doh*). To win, sign in to Facebook, join the Kryptonite Group and upload your photos. Add me as a friend while you're there. I've been using Kryptonite U locks since the 80s and have never had a bike stolen.
But before you do that -- any ideas on my lack of a lock?
