Discover accommodation across the world in the best cycling destinations

Every cloud has a silver lining

Bed and Bike has been developed for fellow bike nuts like me. The idea was born whilst I was recovering from a serious downhill accident in the hospital. As I am not able to work I needed to raise money from somewhere. My initial idea was to create a website to rent my home to fellow cyclists to make a bit of cash on the side whilst I recover. I live yards away from the Taff Trail, around the corner from Castell Coch a short cycle to The Garth and a 20-minute drive from Bike Park Wales. My location is perfect for fellow mountain bikers why not rent my property out so fellow cyclists can enjoy the beautiful trails South Wales has to offer I thought.
After many hours pondering how I’m going to go about creating such a site I thought to myself why not create a platform where others can rent their properties to. So Bed and Bike was born. I purchased the domain from my hospital bed and started brainstorming and planning how I could develop such a website. Luckily for me, I am a web designer by trade. Having developed a similar platform for a Glamping site I had the basic structure ready to rock and roll.
As soon as I was out of hospital I started building Bed and Bike to distract my mind from my accident and neck brace that I now have to wear. My main goal is to create a trusted platform for a cyclist to discover accommodation across the world in the best cycling destinations. I believe the cycling community is tight knit and what better way to share experiences and knowledge than to open your doors to like minded people.
As I have only just launched the platform I would be very appreciative if you have any feedback on how I can improve the site and help me spread the word. If you click the link here I have written a blog about the future features I’m working on to make your Bed and Bike experience that little bit better.
Thanks for reading. Hope you can help the Bed and Bike community grow.
Best Wishes
