If you’re the kind of girl/guy who loves long bike rides, then a cycling vacation must be an amazing adventure! Just the thought of visiting cities and seeing amazing landscapes while you do your most favorite activity in the whole world must be extremely exciting!
However, if you choose to take your bike, you must also be prepared accordingly. Regardless of the fact that you want to take an organized tour or you simply want to take a bike ride through Europe, there are certain things you need to take care of. For instance, your bike; in order to reach the starting point of your tour, you must get there. And if you leave in Austria and want to start in Spain, going there by bike is out of the question.
So, let’s see how to include your bike in the luggage.
There are several solutions when it comes to packing up the bike, but none of them include leaving it intact. In order to take it with you, the bike must be dissembled, put in a container of your choice, and then reassembled at the destination.
This also means you should know where everything goes when your bike is in pieces. To make sure everything goes back the right way, you must include a repair bike kit and the right tools.
Now, the best containers when it comes to packing your bike during a trip are:
• A bike travel bag – this one is similar to a regular travel bag only it’s bigger and has better insulation. The bag is covered with a thick, protective layer so bumps during shipment won’t affect your bike. The best part is that, when empty, it can be packed into a small pack that can be attached to the bike.
• A bike case – this is a hard case, similar to a travel trolley, equipped with foam padding for protection. While this is the ideal way to pack your bike for transport, it is also quite expensive. If you don’t travel with your bike frequently, the investment may not be worth it.
These are the safest ways to pack your bike when you’re travelling by plane or train. If you decide to take your personal car, then all you need is an external bike support that goes on top or at the back of the car. You simply secure the bikes and hit the road.
Shipping the bike
If your destination is a popular biking resort, then shipping the bike before you get there might be a good solution. For instance, in France, where there are some of the most amazing biking tours you could ever take, you can simply discuss the matter with the hotel staff. People are so used to amateur and professional cyclists in these areas that the surprise would be not showing up with a bike.
You can also get in touch with a local store and have the bike delivered by courier to them. They will assemble it for you so the journey can start on a positive spin.
As you can see, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Even more, if you’re not that much into cycling, you may be more interested in another type of bike that also goes great with long trips and lots of fun. So, regardless of the type of bike, you can start your vacation preparation right now.
