ECHO PARK — It’s come to this – not only do you need to lock up your bike, you need to lock up your bike rack. Sometime overnight one of the bike-shaped racks that were recently installed around Echo Park Lake was stolen from the southeast corner of the park, a city official said today.
Not only did the black metal rack go missing, but so did the rack’s pair of six-inch concrete bases that were buried in the ground. All that’s left are two square patches of dirt where the bases had been located.
The theft took place about a week after the racks were installed.
