Getting out of airports on a bike
« on: April 25, 2005, 02:06:45 am »
Dear Listizens,
We're planning a holiday in England and Wales in June.  Flying into Heathrow.  Any advice on getting out of Heathrow by bicycle?  And specifically from Heathrow to Guildford?
And, more generally, any good web sites on getting out of airports by bicycle?
Thanks!

Getting out of airports on a bike

We have flown into Gatewick a couple of time and
out of Heathrow to Ireland one.  We did not ride out
of the airports but took our bikes on the train into
London or out into the country side.  The train is a
bit of a challenge  depending on the time of day
and we needed to be very persistent in getting
them  onto and off of the trains.  Our experience in
the UK was a bit more challenging regarding bikes
and their transport then in Ireland or France.
Airport web sites have some good information and
if you need to take the trains try their web site.
