    With my non folder, i would take front wheel off and drape it over passenger seat with forks and handlebar in footwell. Folder like my Montague rode on seat. Some people will put dike on top bunk or against back wall in bunk

    Get a folding bike & carry it inside the sleeper. That'll keep the road grime off of it.

    Can also get electric folding bikes.

    once you drive a truck, and see how most people drive, you may not want to ever be anywhere near those smartphone users/driver without 30,000 lbs of plastic around you. Bikes take up a lot of space. walking is exercise, requires little more than shoes.

    The easiest would be to get a folding bike or a mini bike like the Velo Orange Neutrino. If that’s not an option you could get a wheel bag and store the bike and wheels on the top bunk. I also know of one guy who removed the passenger seat to carry a folding bike.

    Now is you chance to get a Unicycle. Its much more exercise than a bicycle and takes much less room
    Also get on Facebook and join Truckers with Bicycles and read the sticky post on how and where to put bike. Its a sticky because its always the first post of new members
     
    Dennixx and Long FLD Thank this.

    I hear you.. I like riding bikes but I am open to both walking and joining a gym if it's not practical. I thought there may be something to hang it from the side of the wall in my truck. Until I get a full load and it gets completely mangled. Thanks for the reply.
