Recently, I caught my Mom parking her nice new Fuji in the back of the garage. Right behind the place she backs her car up to.

I insisted that this was a VERY bad place for her bike! So, we found another space where she could hang the bike up.

Turns out that I was right! Just recently she was backing up into the garage, and missed her mark, and hit the shelf that the bike had been parking in front of. The shelf got bent, but held, and the bike is fine, safely hanging up and out of the way.

Park your bike behind the car? You're NUTS!

And lock it. It is not unusual for oportunistic criminals to snatch an unlocked bike from an open garage. You could be working in the garage with the door opens, you run into the house for a "pop" and the phone rings, then you forget the garage door is open and you have trusted your bike to the honest nature of every person who passes by.

I have my bikes locked to the wall where they hang.

Have enough room in your garage for bikes and a car? You're ORGANIZED!
