The more I've been cycletouring, the more I tend to avoid big cities. It's not that I don't appreciate wandering around in a beautiful city for a day or two from time to time, it's just that I find it such a hassle with a bicycle: the traffic, the bike/pannier storage when trying to visit something, the wardrobe switch, etc.
Should I just book a hotel? What do you do? Any practical tips? Also, what are some bike friendly cities to visit besides Amsterdam and Copenhague ? Thanks.
