    I'll be traveling Cambodia by bike and would love to see a couple of the Cambodian islands (Rong, Rong Saloem, perhaps Takiev). Could anyone suggest what I oughta do with my bike? Could I bring it across to the islands? Should I try and leave it somewhere in Sihanoukville? (yikes)

    There are few or no roads on the islands. Those that there are are rough tracks created for construction lorries, and tricky to ride on. The ferries are passenger boats, not drive-on vehicle ones. I suggest you find a guesthouse in Sihanoukville with parking (probably have more luck with a Khmer-owned place), stay there a couple of days and ask if you can leave your bike there. Buy a chain and padlock and offer to pay for the service. Did the same with my bike last year, and it was still there when I returned!

    OP here, Thanks @Abigalatpenhandink.

    Just to update anyone who might have the same question: absolutely zero reason to bring your bike to the islands (nor is it a possibility). I don't think I realized just how small they'd be. Left my bike at "wish you were here" hostel on Otres Beach, and it was there in one piece when I returned!
