My basement and garage always have bikes in them. Periodically one or more is found in the living room as well. In good weather I have been keeping my primary rider on the hitch rack on my car so it is easier to take a ride after work.

I keep my bikes in our garage, guest room, and hanging from the ceiling in my office (up high and against a wall). Oh ya, and one is sitting on our patio under a tarp.

I keep my old 10-speed Ross (which I never ride any more), plus whichever bike I am currently riding (currently my Motobecane Mirage) in the "Carriage House" with my truck and my son's VW GTI. The other two bikes (my Trek 820 mtb and my Surly LHT) arehanging from the ceiling in the garage in the basement with my Mustang and my wife's CX9.

Last year since it was just a Walmart bike and I only rode the bike trail after work, it lived on the rack on the back of my car rain or shine.

This year since I have something that is woth something and it is capable of riding on my hilly roads, it is in the garage. Occasionally it goes to work with me in the trunk if I want to ride the trail.

My ex got the dining room table in the divorce, freeing up room for bikes in the dining room.

My backyard, close to the back door. I'd absolutely prefer to keep them inside, because they are steel, but I'm 16 and live with my parents and brother. Never had them stolen, but there have been burglaries on my block, but only stuff that's out front.

I live in the ground floor of my apartment so I have it right near my door for a quick exit.

I also have a washing machine and I hang dry my clothes in the same room. Could the moisture from clothes washing and hanging slowly rust my bike parts?

My family's six bikes plus several others in various states of repair/rebuild are in our extended three car garage. It's starting to get a bit crowded, so my wife has been pushing me to finish up some of project bikes and get them out of there.

Some years ago when I lived in a high-crime part of town I used to keep my old Motobecane Le Champion road bike hanging from the ceiling of the laundry room. It had a separate entrance from the outside and you couldn't see the bike from the yard. It had to be the most expensive bike in the neighborhood by far. The house would get burglarized regularly, probably by local druggies who would wait just long enough for you to replace the stolen items. The thief never broke into the room where the bike was stored and probably wouldn't steal it anyway as he was looking for small, easily concealable items like cameras and VCRs which he could sell on the street or at the local pawn shops. I finally got fed up and moved to a much better neighborhood with a low crime rate. I've even had a brain fart and left my very expensive recumbent trike sitting out in open view overnight and it was still there the next morning. That would have never happened at the old place.
