Bike on the bus

Hello all

Is it possible to bring a bike on the bus from Colonia to Montevideo? I hired a car for 10 days from Buenos Aires and I'm planning to take with it with in Colonia to Montevideo & then Punta del Este.

Your advise would be mostly appreciated.

Best regards

Nancy

No problem! I´ve seen lots of bikes been taken with the luggage, some of them take the front weel off, though.

Why don´t you ride the bike from Colonia to Montevideo? Biking Uruguay is wonderful and you do not need to use helmet in Argentina and Uruguay. By the way, you can transport your bike from Buenos Aires to Colonia with no problems. And Buenos Aires is a great city to ride by bike too.

Not having to use a helmet is a good thing? I hope you don't mean that. Plenty of people wear helmets in Montevideo.

Thank you so much for all your responses guys, I really appreciated it and a very positive too. GibaHK, I would bike from Colonia to Montevideo but I would have a backpack. And as a cyclist from Sydney I would definitely wear a helmet :-)

Best regards to all
