Packing up your bike for that mountain bike holiday in Morzine or Finale Ligure with your mate is the best feeling there is, apart from smashing the trail up when you arrive. But how much does it really cost to take your bike on the plane and what do individual providers really charge you for the pleasure. 

Our friends over at YellowJersey have put together this funky infographic to show you what the deal is with out having to search through ever Website, enjoy! 

luggage flight morzine bike

Every airline will offer something different, some include the bicycle as hold luggage some don't, with some airlines your ticket will cost more and the bike is free and others the ticket is less and the bike £70 like Easyjet. It's a mine field out there but if you look hard enough at the T&C's you will find what you're after. 

Easyjet recently reduced their bike bag weight allowance down to 25kg and there was uproar, it soon went back to the 32kg weight we know and expect, well done. Fly with BA however and it's a free cheese and pickle sanger and free bike carriage but costs a little more. 

Most important thing is a good bike box and some insurance form our friends over at YellowJersey, they cover everything from you, your bike and your medical costs to go get it

Hi Guys,

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.

 

A buzzing ski resort packed full of restaurants, bars and alpine culture, Morzine's restaurant scene was once a fairly drab affair in Summer, owners preferring to take the time off or open softly with a minimal menu and hours. Not so now with Summer offering new opportunities, new ingredients, new menus and new, sunny terraces breathing new life into the town. This is driven by the young generation of Morzinoise and British owners who are ready to move with the times.

Liguria is a region rich in food culture in a country obsessed with what goes on the plate. There simply is nowhere else in the world that cares so passionately about food. The dedication to eating well shouldn't be mis-understood, it's not about fine dining, table cloths and intricate presentation, it's about love.
