My family had come to Chicago from Michigan to ride bikes along the Lakeshore. We parked and locked our five bikes with multiple cable locks. The bikes were locked to each other and the bike rack at the east gate entrance to the Lincoln Park Zoo. We were in the zoo for approximately 2.5 hours. When we returned, one of the cables had been cut and one of the bikes stolen. The other four bikes were not taken, but a small bike pump strapped to one of the bikes was taken.
