I have got a big bike with a basket on the front, you know the sort, I suppose I could put it, less basket but with paniers, on the bike rack but what is the best bike to get for the motorhome? Not thinking electric at the moment.

A cheap one would be my preference, that way you won't be too worried if it gets stolen. Mudguards useful, probably not lights. A rear rack over the back wheel. Second hand bikes are often quite cheap. But if you are happy to buy a new bike the Decathlon bikes are not too expensive, this one for example comes with a lot of kit for the price: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/mens-nework-5-sport-bike-id_8222609.html and for half that price this one, although it does look a bit odd! http://www.decathlon.co.uk/original-300-hybrid-bike-white-id_8245553.html

Why not pop to somewhere like Halfords, take the motorhome and choose from their extensive range :)

They'll let you try before you buy, plus you can see how easy it is to lift on the rack for size and fit etc :)

That way you'll get the bike of your choice with all the extras you may need or would like (mud guards, lights, gears etc), in your colour and style to suit you, and not the many options we could offer :)

Your pennies after all :)

I think our approach would be-these are the bikes we'd like to have with us,will they go on the M/Home ?-if not,how can we modify the M/Home to carry them?
You have to ride them,for whatever purpose you take them with you-the M/Home merely carries them for you.
