Is a bike the best campervan accessory?

Take your two wheeled companion on the trip of a lifetime! There is no reason to leave your faithful friend behind - they are your best accessory.

You may think you don’t have the space to bring a bike - or that they aren’t worth the space they do take up - but a bike is quite possibly the best campervan accessory there is.

The benefits are far more wide-ranging than any other accessory. A bike can provide simple, functional practicalities, as well as being in itself a vehicle for pure enjoyment. We’ll take you through everything a bike has to offer and how best to go about bringing your bike with you.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
