Push bike holidays are becoming more popular, especially in Europe. Making your hotel or friendly for bikes is a massive plus and can help bring in that little extra bit of business for you.
One of the most popular routes to cycle in the UK is the coast to coast bike ride. This starts in the Lake District and finishes in Yorkshire. Because of the amount of people that are doing this route, a lot of the hotels and bed and breakfasts are starting to cater for cyclists.
One of the most important things that any cyclists wants from an overnight stay is to know that their bike is safe, and will be there in the morning. Thats why even if your bike is locked away its important to research the best bike equipment that is available out there. You want to ensure that even if your bike is locked up inside a building that you put your own lock on your bike. If possible lock it to something else. If there is not anything, then lock it to your friends bikes. If you have about 5 bikes, it would be very hard for a thief to steal bikes that are locked together. They would struggle to get them through the front door.
We would also recommend taking the front wheel and seat up to your room. That way if someone did manage to try and steal the bike they cannot get very far as they will not be able to cycle away on it.
