Bike storage available overnight at hosts in USA?

Hi everyone,

I'm embarking on an east --> west trip across USA, my first big cycle tour!

Question to hosts and guests alike: when offering somewhere to stay, do hosts normally have somewhere safe to store the bike overnight? Might seem obvious, but I wanted to get a feel for it!

Many thanks :)

Ollie -  As I host I do have

Ollie -  As I host I do have a garage where members can safely and securely store their bikes.   I suspect most hosts do, but it is something to ask about when contacting a host if that is important to you.     Enjoy your trip and look me up if you are traveling through the Phoenix Arizona area.   Bruce

I would say that many hosts

I would say that many hosts are also cycletourists and have a great interest in protecting your ride. They know how important it is to you too. I know your bike would be sitting next to mine in garage safe and secure!

We just registered as hosts

We just registered as hosts since we noticed our town of Murphysboro, IL seems to be passed through by many traversing the transam route.  We arent "serious" cyclists by any means, but just figured we'd offer food and shelter to those undergoing the journey.  We have a garage for storage, so look us up if you end up staying in Murphysboro IL during your trip.  Good luck!

I would think your only issue

I would think your only issue would be with hosts in large cities.  Typically their apartments will be very small and no place for a bike in the apartment.  But sometimes they will have a locked area for pick storage.

Hosts & Secure Bike Storage

I would agree with the others, most hosts are going to have a safe and dry place for your ride. When we cycled across N.America we never had a problem w/storage, even when staying in hotels. We asked for first floor rooms.
