HOW TO PACK YOUR BIKE FOR TRAVEL!

Summertime is holiday time! What you should absolutely take with you on holiday? Your bike! (Well, and your beloved of course).
Travelling with a bike must be well planned. How do I pack my bike for travel? Do I have to contact the airline before the flight to register my bike? Which car bike rack is the right one for me? To make sure you and your loyal road bike will enjoy the trip and stay relaxed until you’ve reached your destination, we will give you some tips on how to transport your bike best in the following.

How do I pack my bike for air travel?
You can choose from a huge range of different bike cases to make sure your road bike will safely arrive at your destination. On the one hand, there are soft cases available that offer light protection and are easy to stow away in your hotel room. On the other hand, you can choose a hard case or a flight case. These are reinforced cases that are especially designed for your bike. Some travel cases or bike cases also include a wheel bag to separately pack away sensitive wheels.

How do I properly transport my bike when travelling by car?

Gone are the days when you just packed your bike on the backseat of your car or in the trunk with the wheels removed. Not to think of transporting two bikes at once! Today, it is much easier to transport a bike, as there are good car bike racks available for any intended use. Practical and secure, also for several bikes – fitted and removed within seconds. Compact trunk and hitch racks are easy to install and extremely comfortable to load compared to classic roof rack solutions. No matter if you prefer a roof rack, a trunk rack or a tow bar mounted rack: A modern bicycle transport system reliably fixes your bike with holder arms and tensions straps, so that it is ready for use after arrival. With these tips you are ready to get going!

In this video, we’ll show you how easy it is to transport bikes with high-end bike racks by Thule:
