Beware cyclists! Bike thieves at work in LoDo

Yesterday, a woman who works as a hair stylist in LoDo complained to me about a rash of recent bike thefts in the area. Indeed, a quick check of Denver Police reports since Tuesday shows that at least six people who locked up their bikes near 17th and Wynkoop, and 16th and Market, returned to discover their rides gone. Several of the snatchings occurred in the middle of the day.

Could this be the work of Kenny Be's summer bike monsters? Either way, probably best to invest in a good U-lock.
