Storing bikes at Frankfurt Airport

My Fiance and I are going to Prague for a friend's wedding.
We are connecting in Frankfurt. When we get back to Frankfurt from Prague,
we want to spend a week or so biking around. We need to stash
the bikes in or somewhere near the Frankfurt airport for a few days while we
go to the wedding. Has anyone done anything like this? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

If I'm home when you come, you can store them in my basement. Let me know.

Wow, that would be awesome! I'll let you know
when I get our flight itinerary. Any other suggestions
in case you won't be there? Will left luggage lockers be big enough?

I can call the airport tomorrow and ask if they have big lockers and how much they cost.

What month are you coming?

I know the wedding is the weekend of August 12th, so probably sometime after that.
Thanks.

There is a place to store the bikes at the Frankfurt airport. I learned the hard way.

Cost was 6 euro per night per bike.

Hmmmm, barring a catastrophe, I will be away on a month long bike-tour in August. But, as usual, Bruce Northcutt is right on the money about the over night bike storage at Fraport. Check out: http://www.airportcity-frankfurt.com...26.storage.htm

Great, thanks for the info. What is the weather typically like there in August.
Good luck on your tour.
