We can help you send a bike or bike box within France if you're cycling a one-way route. Here's what to do.
This page relates to shipping WITHIN France. For shipping bikes to/from France, see here.
If you need your bike or bike box sent WITHIN FRANCE, I work with a bike shipper who can arrange this for you.
Email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details and I'll hook you up:
- departure date and address (ideally a fixed address/your first hotel as the bike will need signing for)
- end of route destination and date (ideally a fixed address/your last hotel)
- number of bike boxes
- bike box dimensions
- bike box weight
You should also price Eelway – this is a French company based in Lyon. They offer a simple online shipping service that counts bicycles as baggage. They ship via the DHL network and offer competitive prices for French-France services in particular. Bikes, I'm told, can be sent fully assembled (but they should still be bagged, boxed or wrapped for protection). They also offer airport-hotel bike transfers in major cities, as well as luggage storage facilities in cities around France. Here is their bike page.
