How do you carry a lock on a road bike?

Where should I lock my bike if I don’t have a bike rack?
Lock your bike to something tall and/or incredibly hard to move, like a tree, road sign, light pole, or a fence.

How do I secure my bike outside?
Leaving your bike outside is a last resort as it invites rust and theft. Fit a wall or floor anchor, so you can secure your bike with big chain or D-lock. An eye-bolt type expander bolt will work okay, so long as the eye is big enough to fit your lock; take that to the hardware store with you.
Can you lock in the front wheel of a bike?
You can loop a cable lock around the front wheel and the bike frame, and optionally around the rear wheel as well if the cable is long enough. Lock the cable together using its built in lock or a padlock. For greater security, use a second U-lock instead to secure the front wheel to its frame.
