i use a Brompton folding bike as my main mode of transportation. I've taken it to Melbourne (au), Hawaii, NYC, Chicago, etc. I was going to take it with me on an upcoming trip to Europe as I am hitting up a number of bike friendly cities. I am going to Berlin, Copenhagen and maybe London and other cities in Germany.

When I traveled before most of the places did not have bike shares so it was nice to have the bike. But now even NYC and Chicago have bike shares.

Does anyone have experience with bringing your own bike vs. a bike share in Europe?

I can only help with London, but there is a huge Bike Share program there with many docking stations scattered around central London. We seldom saw the stations out of bikes, and the scheme seems quite simple enough. If you only take a bike for 30 minutes at a time (more than enough to get between any of the docks) you only pay two pounds per 24 hours. Probably the single cheapest thing to do in that City!
