Cardboard box for bicycle in Bristol / London?

Hi all!

I'm currently cycling in Scotland, and I'm planning to book my return flight from London back to Finland for August 20 or 21. For my return, I need a big cardboard box that I can use to pack my bicycle into. Any tips on where to ask for boxes in London or Bristol (I'll be spending a few days there before my flight)? My bicycle is a small size 50 road / endurance bike.

Thanks a million!

Best,
Jesse

Bike box at Heathrow Airport

Jesse,
If you’re flying out of Heathrow, there is a bike shop called twenty7bikes at Runway Cycles that will sell you a recycled bike box for about $10 and also pack your bike in the box for about $35. They are located about 3 miles from Heathrow and there is a bus that goes from near the bike shop to the airport that will take your boxed bike. Here’s the link to their website - twenty7bikehire.co.uk
