Moving to KC later this month, and of course will want to ride around as much as possible.
So the question is: How bad is the bike theft situation?
Riding from like 61st (brookside area) to downtown and everywhere in between, how much do i need to worry about getting my bike snagged?
(solidly locked of course)
- during the day at restaurants, grocery store, etc?
- bar hopping in the evenings (not overnight)?
- and yes i keep hearing about how bad things are east of troost, but otherwise are any areas worse than others?
Follow-up question: I see there are few off-street paths to connect things, but lots of "marked bike routes". Are these indeed the safest ways to commute or is it best just to figure out side street routes?
