Streetfilms: Hal Grades Your Bike Locking 3 — The Final Warning

12:59 PM EDT on May 12, 2009

With Bike Month well underway and lots of new cyclists hitting the streets, we need a sage to remind us how easy it is to roll your bike. So, once again, I'm pleased to present immortal Bicycle Habitat mechanic Hal Ruzal in the last chapter of his exclusive Streetfilms trilogy
on proper bike locking. Hal is calling it "your final warning."

This time around Hal not only grades the ability of anonymous locker-uppers, but also shows you how he secures his own bike, so you too can score an
"A" (or at least have a decent shot at an A- or B+). And if you can't get enough of Hal's
stories and musings, don't miss our first two
chapters: "Hal Grades Your Bike Locking" and "Hal (and Kerri) Grade Your Bike Locking."
