DROPPING OFF THE BIKES
Please note that for certain races, we make use of specially designed cardboard boxes in order to transport the bikes. When dropping off your bike, we will unclip the front wheel of the bike, and then place the bike, together with the wheel, in the box. We will cover the de-attached wheel in bubble wrap so as to ensure that no damage is suffered by the wheel or the bike.
When dropping off the bike, all devices which are not permanently fastened to the bike, such as speedometers, cadence meters, heart rate monitors, water bottles, etc. can also be placed inside the box so as to ensure that none of our cyclists lose any of their expensive equipment.
Please note that for certain races when we handle fewer bikes we use bike trailers that allow for the hang option of bikes. Bikes are not boxed and remain fully assembled.
OWNERSHIP AND TRANSPORTATION
Ownership of the bike always rests with the cyclist, and is never transferred to The Bike Migration during transportation of the bike.
The Bike Migration uses rented trucks, bike trailers or our courier partner services to transport bikes. Over the 12 years of services we have build up trusted relationships with other bike transporters and our preferred courier and truck service to handle the bikes expertly. Each race is different and requires different transport methods due to volume and race location.
