Logistics of bike box w/r/t a Yank in Europe
My wife and I are considering/thinking/plotting/daydreaming about/hoping for a bike trip in Europe sometime soon.
We would take our own bikes, in boxes, to our European destination.
In our plots and plans there is one thing we cannot quite figure out.
Can we store the bike boxes at the European airport until we return? OR, if we fly into one airport and out of another one, is it generally possible to ride to the airport, buy a bike box from the airline, and pack up at the airport? (Is it possible to do that in the US? I'd love to be able to ride to/from the airport on all sides . . .)
Thank you in advance for answering this hopelessly newbie question. I ride a bicycle every day as my sole form of transportation and cartage, but I haven't gone on a bike tour in 30 years!
