Hi Mike, looks like you got the job then. When I was cycling around I would take the bicycle as baggage so no extra charge involved. The last time was 2004 from Mumbai to Heathrow so things may have changed. If you still can take them as baggage but look like exceeding the weight allowance, upgrading to 1st class with an increased baggage allowance might work and still be cheaper than the UK shipping agent's price. It's sunny here in Cusco and the NRB's
prices would not seem out of place in central Edinburgo. Ride safe.
