How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike was locked (I think) to a street light. I was inside a private residence for approximately 15 minutes.
The bike was only left for a few minutes. That makes me wonder whether I locked it properly, but I think I did. There was no lock or evidence of a cut lock at the location.
