Cops to Teach Cyclists Some New Tricks on How to Avoid Getting Their Bikes Stolen

The only thing more frustrating than getting hit over the head with a high heel by a drunken Marina girl is having your brand-new bike stolen, even though you locked it up.

This really isn't hard to believe, but bike theft is on the rise in San Francisco, with more than 500 bikes reported stolen last year. In the Mission District, at least one bike a day is reported stolen, said Officer Matt Friedman.

But here's your chance to stop those thieves from pedaling off with your new fixie. SFPD is teaming up with a slew of other groups that care about you and your bike enough to hold a bike theft workshop next week.
