yet another random question for the hive mind-
I may have fallen off my bike on tour a little bit and may have slightly fractured my wrist and kindof got in a bit of a cast, so its time to limp home for a while.
except getting a bike inna box and getting said box onna plane, offa plane, onna bus, offa bus, onna train, offa train and then half a mile uphill is enough of a pain with both hands, let alone one handed, so I could do with some cunning plans if anyone can think of one.
currently the options are
-get it on the plane with sweat and blood and bribery.
it would be a major pain to do, but with enough asking random strangers for help, paying a bike shop or something, it could possibly be done.
-post it home
expensive and still needs to be put in a box. also has a small risk that it will arrive in pieces.
-find someone here to take care of it until I come back.
the current favourite. I'm in milan and live in britain, so getting back here is dead easy and theres a bicycle collective that lends bicycles to tourists that seem trustworthy enough and it means someone will get to use it while I'm not
can anyone think of better ideas?
