I'm going to do something crazy, and bring my electric bike to the UK. I know that the European speed limit is 15mph, but I plan to take it easy (except for the hills of course).
As many of you know, flying with bicycles is fine, (and on Virgin, free apparently), but Lithium batteries are forbidden (http://safetravel.dot.gov/larger_batt.html) as of last year (though not in cargo, oddly enough). In any case, I'm FedEx'ing them to the Heathrow FedEx office, but they need the Material Data Safety Sheet, whatever that is, which has the UN#, whatever that is. Does anyone have these, know where I can download them? I've had trouble getting a hold of the Bionx folks, a story to which I'm sure you can relate.
And any thoughts/experience with travel or shipping would be welcome of course.
Hopefully, I have some pictures to post and stories to tell when I get back.
