Bikes are like shoes. You can never have too many. In fact, The Original Bike Handsome actually owns more bicycles than shoes. (Including cycling shoes!) We all start with one bike, but after riding for a while, something else catches your eye. Maybe you graduate to a more aggressive geometry. Or perhaps you need a beater so that you can leave your fancy ride safe at home when you hit the bars. Maybe you entertain out-of-town guests and you'd like to include them in the fun. There are as many reasons as there are occasions.
But no matter what, you're going to need bike storage.
Bike Storage Around The World
A lot of French houses have wine caves. That is to say, underground cellars for storing vintages at just the right temperature. The house we visited in Normandy also had a bicycle cave.
My friends in London keep their bikes in the front room, which triples as the guest bedroom.
￼Staying in that room, I felt right at home. Maybe because it reminded me of the hallway at Bike Pretty Headquarters:
Living in a city like San Francisco, it's better to store your bike inside at night. I'd love to add a cargo bike to my stable, but I've run out of space in my apartment.
A good option is an outdoor shed. If you're lucky enough to live in the UK, Asgards has free shipping for their storage lockers. And if you find that you have extra space in the locker, that's a good reason to get another bike.
