I wanted to ask how best to send a bike to spain for a month cycling trip! I have built a bike myself, and before i did build the bike i checked i would be able to take it on the bus on Flix bus however everytime you search with a bike to travel on the bus between london and spain it states "its fully booked". I have emailed and called - them. All other coach companies do not allow non folding bikes, oui, albus, euro lines...
.I have tried buses,ferries and even flying as a last option. But they are either very expensive or will not allow bikes. I wanted to ask if anyone knew a way i could send it to Spain?
I have few questions
- any adivce on a parcel company that does pick up points or how to send it to spain?
- how is it best to send it so it dont get bashed about? Obviously in a bike box and padded out, but anything else?
- could a hostel accept a parcel? but how safe is that?
please help i really do not want to abandon my plans. thanks all!
