    A Norwegian insurance company did a map of all the places bikes were stolen in Norway last year. Every stolen bike happened in a large town or city (90% in large cities). I always buy food in small towns and villages and if I’m in a big city I will take my bike in to the supermarket. You really don’t need to carry a big lock with you.
    At night if your bike is next to your tent It won’t get stolen unless you camp in a park in a city (which is illegal anyway).

    I have in the past taken a hiplock to tie the bike up when food shopping. https://hiplok.com/product/zlokcombo1/
