I have just arrived in Santiago.
Can anyone recommend a bike shop where I might get a bike box?
Also is there any host that could store my bicycle while I take a trip by bus to San Pedro de Atacama?
Sorry for posting in English but my Spanish is bad!
You want to go to San Diego St, maybe 2km south of downtown. For a couple blocks it is nothing but rows and rows of bike shops. They frequently put empty boxes on the sidewalk or you could walk in and ask any of them for a box. I sold my bike at a shop there when I left the country. I imagine one of them would probably store your bike as well.
Thanks for the address I will head over!
