* Use a small bike that can take the wheels easy, can be useful to strip it out of not needed items (like mudguards) to make packing smaller and easier
* Try to ask car drivers for a hitch, not only vans and trucks, people tend to be really helpful with cyclists, and you will find out a bike can fit in many cars (on the back sit). ([[User:taborda]] hitchbiking from [[Amsterdam]] to [[Portugal]] just got one hich offer where the bike actually didn't fit, on all others it was possible to fit the bike - mostly in "normal" cars)
* Always take the front wheel off, and make sure it's visible you have the bicycle and are hitchhiking. Having a sign helps drivers know you are looking for a ride (as opposed to being broken down and looking for help).
