I know a lot of cyclists keep harping about safety and bike lanes, but I think bike theft is really the bigger problem overall. Yes, one cyclist killed is still one cyclist killed too many but hundreds if not thousands of people get their bikes swiped in this city every year.

I hear your concern, but hard disagree on that one. You can replace or recover a stolen bike, but you can't replace a dead cyclist

I don't disagree. Lives matter more than property, yes.

But the issues are separate and require separate sets of solutions. We can walk and chew gum at the same time.
