Where will I stay?

When renting a bicycle to use throughout your stay, it's a good idea to choose an accommodation where you can park the bike safely. Preferably, the bikes are parked inside. If that's not possible, it's okay to park the bike on the property of the accommodaiton; in front of your holiday house, in the garden, in the parking lot or at a dedicated bike parking place.
