Where to leave the car

Postby BeardyWeirdy » 19 May 2016, 11:54am

Hi all

I am taking by bikes over to Germany for a weeks bike tour with my wife - based round the Moselle valley route

I will be starting from Trier, but will need to leave the car for about a week. Any experience of good places to leave the car - either at Trier or generally?

Thanks for any ideas

I don't know the area but we've been successful before by asking the campsite that we stayed in when we arrived. Same would go for a hotel that's not got loads of parking pressure I should think. Otherwise try a local warm showers person either for somewhere to leave it or advice.

Ditto, we have left the car at:- YHA; Scotland and Ireland, campsites in Poland and Scotland, or hotel....... offer a donation or they may have a small charge .. think in Poland the charge was equivalent to about £5. Scottish campsite it was probably around £20.

Same as above. I offer the campsite a "fee" for leaving my car, and so far they have said yes to leaving the car and no to my offer of money.

You could try googling a local cycling club and ask them.
