James and friends,
Can we make it a "suggestion" that people are:
1) Not supposed to "store" their bikes at NB.
2) If they are NB regulars, please ensure there is name/contact information
on their bike, if they wish to leave it unattended
3) Locks should be on ALL bikes in the upstairs rack.
1 & 3 may reduce the chances we'll be targeted by bike thieves.
