We recently had Swiss cyclists Luc and Val stay with us. They had contacted us through Warmshowers, and we were happy to help with turnaround logistics as they changed continents. They had flown to Vancouver from Mumbai, with their bikes in the standard cardboard boxes and their other luggage in locally purchased hold-all bags.
We’ve boxed our bikes in preparation for imminent departure, and we re-used their practical bags for our own other-than-bike luggage. The bags that began their travels in India will keep going as far as Germany. Who knows where they’ll go next?
As for Luc and Valéryne, from here they headed up the Sunshine Coast, across to Vancouver Island, and south to Victoria. They’re now en route to Portland.
And off we jolly well go again.
