    a little help, traveler tip, needed for Copenhagen

    My wife and I are flying into Copenhagen in mid-June with our bikefridays in their suitcases. we get in early and after a few errands in Copenhagen that morning we hope to be pedalling out of town by midday or so. what I need help with is what do I do with those suitcases. normally I've had no problem just leaving them with the hostel/hotel where we spend our first night but in this case we hope to not spend our first night right in town (most likely a couple of nights at the end we'll stay in Copenhagen) does anyone know of storage lockers associated with the airport or metro where we can stash some suitcases? or do you think it is reasonable to ask a hostel/hotel to hold onto our luggage even though we are not staying there at the beginning of the trip? "Hi, can we put these two suitcases in your storage? what? oh, no, we're not guests right now but we will be in a few weeks"

    thought? suggestions?

    thanks

    I see no reason why a hotel wouldn't hold your luggage if you have confirmed reservations for a future date. Call them and ask (but only talk to the manager and be sure he writes down your name).

    Another option might be to look on a hospitality site, like www.couchsurfing.com or www.hospitalityclub.org, to see if someone who lives in Copenhagen would be willing to hold your boxes until you return. They might even let you stay at their places for free, saving you the cost of the hotel stay.

    Also, here are 3 links to information about bike touring in Denmark that you might find useful.

    Have a great trip!

    You can leave them in the airport; Here is the link
    There are also storage boxes at the central station, the price are all most the same.

    you can take the bikes on the trains into Copenhagen for 12 Dkr ~2$ a piece.

    If you have any questions feel free to send me a message, I'm living 40 km south of copenhagen.

    let me clarify my question: we're needing a place to stow luggage for 6 weeks. so if its a daily charge I think that will add up to being too much.

    any suggestions for inexpensive hotels or nice hostels in Copenhagen with easy access from airport/train station where we can stow luggage at the beginning of our trip even though we won't be staying at that hotel/hostel til the end of the trip?

    thanks

    I think your best bet is indeed to try couchsurfing.com.

    hey I'm just getting ready to sign up for couchsurfing but I was wondering how does a request work? is there a forum for Copenhagen where I post this particular need or do I have to pick out individuals and email each one...

    I'm sure I can wade through all the info on couchsurfing but was hoping for a quick summary of the deal if you could

    thanks
