Bicycles = Freedom, we all know this but escaping to far-away places to ride classic climbs & alpine trails can raise a few issues. Many train companies in Europe are happy to carry your bike but it will often need to be bagged and if you’re flying you need to ensure your pride & joy is protected but what do you do with a large bike bag/box for the rest of the year? This is where we can help!
We have two options for you.
NB if after hiring a bag/box you decide you can’t live without it and purchase one within 3 months of the hire date we’ll discount 50% of the hire cost from the cost of a new bag/box.
