How do I transport my bicycle to the starting point and back home after the tour?
Many airlines now charge a set oversize or sports equipment fee for bike boxes ($ or Euros 100-150 is typical) which you should anticipate paying upon check-in with the airline. Other airlines will simply consider your bike box as your 2nd or 3rd piece of checked luggage and charge you accordingly. You should verify these rules directly with your airline.
Most bike stores will be able to help you package your bike in a cardboard bike box for the flight. If you prefer to do it yourself, click here to take a look at our detailed video and step-by-step instructions. We will provide a cardboard box for you at the end of the tour and our mechanic will gladly help you pack it up for the flight home. Please note that no bicycle cases are allowed on tour as space is limited. You can also read our blog post Traveling with Your Bicycle – Everything you Need to Know.
