Bike-transport bag storage, London

Postby msovereign » 14 Aug 2018, 9:46am

Hi, I'm planning a cycling trip for this fall, flying into London with my bike, then off riding for 4 weeks before flying home again. I need to store my bike bag while I'm travelling. Any suggestions for longish-term storage in London or vicinity that won't cost more than the bike bag is worth?

thanks,
Murray Sovereign - Canada

According to Stasher website - £6 first day, then £5 per day. 4 weeks will be about 26 - 28 days storage. £6 + (26x£5 = £130) = £136. I suspect this will exceed the cost of the bag.

The usual way of doing this is to try to store the bag at your first hotel, is that an option? Or maybe warmshowers.

Which airport are you flying into and what is your first stop. Maybe someone here can help (not me I'm afraid as I live too far away).

Yes, I've done this at hotels before with no charge. Warm showers hosts also likely to be pretty relaxed about this.
