transport bike overseas

Postby lesanddeb » 29 Feb 2012, 4:13am

Hi, We are wishing to cycle uk in september and wish to send our bikes back to australia after the trip so we can continue exploring without a bike. Does anyone know a company that is bike friendly and o/s friendly and not ridiculously priced? cheers deb

Hi. Would the following alternative idea fit in with your plans?
Store your bikes while you explore without them, and then take them back to Australia with you. I live not that far from London Heathrow.

Hi Chris, that is a very nice thought- but there will possibly be 6 bikes and we are also thinking of breaking our trip home by stopping over in asia or somewhere else, and the bikes will be a bit of a burden to cart. regards Deb

Why not just hire bikes in the UK?
