If you are about to fulfill one of your dreams and you are leaving to Europe with your bike or you just consider that as a possible option in future you should definitely read something about parking possibilities there. It concerns you if you only rent a bike in Europe indeed. There are different legal restrictions about that in every country. However in last years their are in general getting worse and worse. E. g. in France it had been legal to park your bike on pavement as you wished. Now there are new restrictions. You can not do that anymore and you can counter wrecking service now! So be aware of this fact and be advised in advance about this situation in particular country you are about to visit. This can save you some unpleasant surprises. You may be asking yourselves naturally: So where should I park my bike? There are some special places for bikers and some cities are even trying to make us special park places, however it will never be like old times:)
