Bike cases storage in Almaty

Postby travelbike » Sun Apr 28, 2019 3:18 pm

Hello everyone,
We're coming to Almaty the 2 nd of August for a 3 weeks gravel bike trip and we're looking for a place to leave our bike cases (2 x for 12 days).
We would stay one night at the beginning of the tour and 2 nights before flying back to Europe.

* Is someone would know an hotel, guesthouse that would keep those 2 boxes (with added fee if asked of course...)?

* We're looking too for a bus, shared taxi which would take us to the Charyn Canyon with our 2 bikes. We've planned to get on bikes on Kokpek.

Thank you for advising.

I think any hotel will be happy to keep them for you.

You will need to hitchhike a truck or rent a minivan to transport your bikes to Charyn

I left my bike case at the hotel for almost 1 month (it was Hotel Resident, half way between airport and city center,).

I also started my bike trip in Kökpek. From Almaty to Kökpek, I took a taxi at Sayakhat avtovokzal. He could carry the bike in his car when the rear seats were folded. Some other taxis may propose to carry a bike on the roof.
