cave envy

I just helped move son and his girlfriend out of a rented flat and into our dining room / garage / shed / loft (don't ask) but en-route we dropped a couple of bits of furniture and her bike at her Aunt's house. They were still on holiday but by prior arrangement we had a garage key which I finally persuaded to turn.

OM actual G! A double garage stuffed to bursting with bikes. A tandem, 2 Bromptons, 3 Condors, 2 recumbents, 2 other folders, a couple of Islabikes and some other stuff I can't remember. And the best bit was they were on a cycling holiday so had their best bikes with them!

I felt kind of dirty cluttering up the place with furniture and a £200 Carrera hybrid :shock:

    do you have the address? and how secure was the garage? - a site for sore eyes

    It's a solid building with a very well engineered German garage door / lock and it took me 10 minutes to open it with the key after the 3 youngsters had all tried and given up. I imagine a determined thief would be in there in seconds though...

    I'm not daft enough to be giving any clues about the location on a public forum. I was so obviously mesmerised by their collection if anything goes missing plod will be coming round to chat to me first :shock:

    Please could you put more distance between the words bike and cave in the title? The k in bike means I keep thinking cake is involved and it's making me hungry.
    Best bike cave I ever saw was the lunch stop on an audax. a couple allowed their back garden to be taken over by a motley selection of cyclists, when using their facilities I saw an open door leading to the garage with rows of bikes hanging. Didn't get close enough to see what there was, but I was still envious.

    Is that any better? I put loads of spaces in but it just ignored them. So I've removed the reference to CAKE / Bike

    Thank you, I just raided a colleagues biscuit tin as well so the combination of the two has worked perfectly, didn't see any cake other than in your post. . :-)
