Latest Terrorist Scare: Bikes on Planes
Never mind snakes on planes. A friend just got back from Europe and told me you can't bring anything on a plane anymore that might be a liquid or a gel.
He told me thatfrom Gatwick all you could have was a passport. Not even water or duty free liquor.
How does this affect those who tour using planes?
Gel tape? Gel saddles? Energy gels? Gel gloves? Only the enemy rides a bike.
You need a new bike
Old news. The prohibition is for carry-on luggage, not checked bags. It shouldn't affect bicycle tourists so long as they check all their luggage.
Definitely old news. And the regulations have lightened up since. What you are talking about was only for hand baggage and only in the immediate aftermath of the latest disrupted terror plot.
You guys don't put your bikes in the overhead compartments?
i just ride straight on to the plane and just kinda stand in the aisle...
Every day a winding road
Darn and I was planning on storing my under my seat along with my panniers.
