All these wonderful places to store a bike in Europe.

@Giacomo, I remember you offered your place to me a year ago I recall. Nice to hear you still have a spot

Currently the TDM850 is kindly stored in shed in far away north west France, between Angers and Le Mans, a little village called Durtal.

It's easy for me to fly in to Paris and catch train to Angers, no problems.

But, yes, a but, north west France is sooooo far from where I like to ride --- the Alps and beyond.
It's no fun at all having to ride across the flat lands to get back into the hills.

I am considering if it might be possible that I could store the bike somewhere closer after this year's trip (France - Italy - Slovenia - Croatia and ...) until the following year.

What would be good, would be if we could have a database of people and locations and costs and time schedules here on the HUB, or have we one already?

i store my bike in Milan with mototouring. Works well, I think it costs 50 euro a month. They will also drop the bike off/pick up at the airport, which is incredibly convenient.

bike storage database

Really a good idea to create a bike storage database.
Those travelers looking for a place to leave their bike in Bilbao surroundings (20 km from the airport), let me know.

I second the idea of a database of available places to store bikes throughout the world.
I have secure dry insulated storage in Cork, Ireland should anybody need it.
Bikes are safe, kept on a rotating trickle charger and started on a weekly basis.
Close to airport, summer ferry to France is only 20 min's away and daily sailings to France and the UK are only 3 hours away.

Anyone in Portugal, storage near Porto?

I left my UK registered bike in southern Spain and I'd like to go through Portugal during the first week of June without having to go back to the place where it is stored now because I have only 1 off-work week to travel and I want to cover some miles in Portugal, entering south and heading north, leaving the bike not too far from an airport so I can prearrange a flight to and from the UK. I need a place to store it for about 3 weeks.
