How to carry a Bike on a Bike?
So much for travelling light.
I've now bought a bicycle whilst staying in Valle to keep fit while learning Spanish.
The tricky bit is how to take the bike with me as I head south.
Taking it is made more difficult because of the panniers and top box so Andy Tiegs' method won't work for me:
I could tie the wheels to my spare tyre carrier at the back of the bike. In fact i now think the whole bike will have to fit there otherwise I won't be able to open any of my boxes without taking the bike off.
The most helpful suggestion so far is to cut it up into smaller bits.
Thanks to Gibbo and rider_x for their help.
Here's a photo of one solution (from Gibbo) and another of the same guy's 'Dog Powered Scooter'.

If you happen to have already carried a bike on a bike and have an elegant solution or have some ideas please email me with the details.
