Getting Your Bike to Lloret de Mar

Travel & Tourism
Lloret de Mar, a popular Spanish town on the Costa Brava, may be best known for its sandy Mediterranean beaches, but it is also a popular spot for cycling enthusiasts. With an extensive network of roads and pathways in and around the main town, cycling routes range in intensity from easy riding to tough, hilly trails and curvy roads that stretch all the way to the Monteseny mountain range, north of Barcelona.

If you’re a cycling geek, taking your own wheels with you to Lloret de Mar will be a given, especially if you’ve paid a lot for your bike and have invested in customised features. However, it is those very reasons why extra care should be taken when planning your trip, to ensure your bike arrives in Lloret de Mar in the same condition it left home.


Transportation from Barcelona to Lloret de Mar will be a breeze, but first you must think about your flight to Barcelona. Find out what rules are in place with the airline you’ve booked, including any extra fees.

British Airways specifies wheels be placed in a recognised bicycle bag, while easyJet allows a bicycle bag or box for transporting. Both carriers offer instructions on how a bike must be packed, such as removing the pedals or folding inwards towards the frame, and moving the handlebars sideways against the frame. British Airways also requests tyres by deflated somewhat to avoid damage during the flight while easyJet does not allow other items such as clothing to be packed around the bike.

To make traveling to Lloret de Mar easy, a number of airlines fly directly into Barcelona every day and a convenient private shuttle service from Barcelona to Lloret de Mar can deliver you and your wheels right to your destination’s door in no time at all. Inform us in advance that you are travelling with a bike.

Shell, Box or Bag?

If your airline gives you a choice between packing your wheels in a box or bag, consider the pros and cons of each option. Hard cases are ideal, but really only work if you are flying in and out of the same airport. If you plan to fly in and out of different terminals, carrying a hard bicycle case around will be cumbersome.

A cardboard case is the cheapest option and can be folded down and recycled upon arrival in Barcelona, then purchased again at a cycle shop for the flight home. However, cardboard boxes can become damaged or wet during the loading and unloading of a plane. If you do decide on this option, add some extra padding around the frame and draw a picture of a bicycle using a black permanent marker on each side of the box so the baggage handlers know what is inside.

A soft padded bag may be better, especially if you pack your frame in extra bubble wrap first, as the case can be folded down and packed away quite easily between uses. Some cyclists opt for a plastic bike bag because baggage handlers know right away what is inside.

Airport Transportation

Now that your bike is all packed and ready to go, getting to Heathrow Airport (or any other one you’re flying from) is as simple as calling a private shuttle transfer service. At Shuttle Direct, we are equipped to handle all shapes and sizes of luggage with care, saving you from the annoyance of trying to fit your precious cargo safely on a bus or taxi to the airport.

The same goes for getting from Barcelona to Lloret de Mar. A private shuttle transfer is going to swiftly and safely transport you and your bike into town and right to your hotel door, so you can get out onto the cycle paths as soon as possible and enjoy everything Lloret de Mar has to offer.

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct, the number one provider of shared and private airport transfers all over Europe and northern Africa. If you’re looking for an affordable transfer fromBarcelona to Lloret de Mar, Lukas and his colleagues can make sure that you and your luggage get to and from the airport swiftly and safely.
