My home alarm system has programmable outputs, I set one up to trigger a relay wired in to the garage door switch, and then reprogrammed the remote for the alarm so that the "panic" feature (the red button) triggers that output, opening the garage door.

The range is pretty good, if I press the button 4 or 5 doors down from my house the garage door is open by the time I get halfway down the driveway.

I use a key ring that's large enough that the garage opener remote can't move around. It also has a plastic outer so it doesn't scratch anything.

I have a button mounted to my bike thats soldered to the garage door opener. I'll post photos when I get home. Took me all but 10 minutes to do. Works great.
