Stop a Touring Bike from Falling Over

Edited by Thor, Jen M, Eng

Welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you a very simple method to prevent your touring bicycle from falling over. A very common problem for cycle tourists is that their bikes often fall over while leaning against a wall or other objects because the bike is so heavy, or there are bags on it making it unstable.

Steps

  1. 1
    A very simple method to prevent this is to take any instrument that you can use to tie easily
    .
    I am using a self-tying cord that can be adjusted and tightened quite simply.

    What you do is pull the front brake towards you to activate the brake, place the strap around it, and tighten it fully
    .
    The brake is now activated and locked, and the wheel cannot move. Wheel movement is the reason the bike falls over. Now, with the brake secured, you are free to move away from the bike, and even if the handlebars move, it will not fall over.
