Bikes

After years of waiting, I'm finally going to my first burn next year. As we're coming from the UK, I was hoping to get some advice about bicycles - how and where can we get them from? I'd rather not buy ones as it's going to cost us a lot of money already, plus it would be wasted when we go home.

Thanks :)

There are some used places, but I'm not sure of the quality of what you'll get, especially close to the burn. I recommend shopping on line for a cheap bike from Walmart, etc. you could donate it to someone after the burn. I know with Walmart, you can order it on line and pick it up at the store. I believe that if you I request it, they'll even assemble it for you.

Also, at BM there are communal bikes, but there's no guarantee you can get one, and someone may take it.
