2:30pm - Mission Beach walk
I just returned from a bike ride with my friend John P. We drove to Mission Beach in John's little Mitsubishi Miev electric car. Then biked up to Pacific Beach.
There are a lot more people on the beach now than there were only a few weeks ago because it's the beginning of the summer season.
6PM - Where's my bike?
It's time to go grocery shopping. I'm driving my Prodeco electric bike to the nearby Von's market. I always park the bike in the same place. Attached by a cable to one of those "Disabled" blue parking signs.
After shopping, I returned to my bike, and the Prodeco was gone! Somebody had stolen my bike! Could I have parked it in another place? I looked around the lot, and sure enough, my bike had been actually stolen.
I went inside the store and asked at the service desk for the police phone number. The police phone notified that somebody would be with me soon. The police line was busy with somebody else right now. I went thru in my mind what had to be done. I'd have to report the bike stolen to my insurance company. Also, buy another bike.
My backpack was filled with groceries, and the pack was heavy. So, I took off the back pack and put it into a shopping cart while waiting for the police to answer the phone. That's when I spotted my electric bike!!
It was parked one aisle over, cabled to another blue disabled sign. Wow! Am I happy to see my bike again!
