--- Taking Your Bike Overseas can be a pain Trust me when I tell you that having your own bike when you’re overseas is really awesome. You can head out for a ride whenever you please, and don’t have to worry about hire shops. (I must admit, riding down from Mont Ventoux on a warm night at 8PM is tres delightful!) However, it’s not all beer and skittles. Lugging a bike around on your holiday – unless you’re prepared for it – can be a total pain. Dragging a bike around the airport, getting taxis, hiring bigger cars, storing your bike bag, trains – you need to consider everything through the prism of what the focus of your trip is. I’ve been through the travails of taking a bike overseas for a cycling holiday (several times). I know the ins and outs, and I want you to know, too. --- The Guide to Taking Your Bike Overseas The VeloNomad Guide to Taking Your Bike Overseas discusses the ins and outs of -taking your bike overseas versus hiring a bike, and a whole lot more! -What’s In the Guide to Taking Your Bike Overseas -Pros and cons of taking your bike overseas -Pros and cons of hiring a bike -What to take and packing -At the airport, taxis, leaving your bike at the airport -Taxis -Trains – general considerations -Trains in France -Trip logistics (family members etc) -Excess baggage -Insuring your bike -Bike bag
