Touring cable/lock options.
Most of the places that I ride are relatively safe.
Grocery Stores, Cafes, Trail heads, Coffee shops ... that I am pretty familiar with.
Like the common advise says, "choose a safe place to park your bike ... keep an eye on it and don't be long".
I carry this small Tether Bike Cable to 'lock' up my bicycle for the short periods of time that I am away from it. It is lightweight, and attaches to my front bike bag when I am traveling. I use a small padlock to fasten it.
Choosing a safe place to park your bike and choosing a quality cable and lock are critical in keeping your bike secure. Use Planet Bike's Wheel Tether with your bike lock to secure your quick-release wheels from theft.
This hopefully will keep my bike from 'rolling away' ... so far it has, (so far I have been lucky).
