I am going back from Madrid to my home town, then returning to Madrid after a month to fly to South America from there. I have my bicycle which I want to take with me to South America - but won't need my bike in cold winter weather of Estonia in the meantime and flying there and back with the bike with connecting flights is extremely expensive and a very big hassle.

Luggage storage services for a month for such a big item would probably also cost earth, and I don't know anyone in Madrid, so I need to find out if there's a (relatively) safe place to lock and keep my bicycle for that time? Maybe there are some large covered bicycle parking lots where the bike could be parked for a bit longer stay?

    Locking a bicycle for a long period of time on the street and with a "standard lock", someone could notice it and you're probably going to have the bike stolen.

    My first point of look would be the airport.

  • Yep, I did check the airport luggage storage - it would be at least about €200 to store it there.

  • Have you asked a friend in Madrid if you can store your cycle with them for a month? Commented Nov 26, 2019 at 15:06
  • Yep, I am trying to find someone who could do that using hospitality networks - for now, I don't know anybody there, it's merely my stopping point in travels

If you are on a bicycle tour, consider using Warmshowers (also on Android and iOS). This app/web site connects cycle tourists to people who are willing to host them, usually overnight, but you may also be able to find someone who can store your bike while you go home.
