UK to AVILES transporting a bike

I’ve never walked the Norte.

A friend is competing in a duathlon in Aviles in November this year. She will have to take a competition bike and an assortment of spares but needs to get there, compete and return to the UK as simply, quickly and cheaply as possible (I know those three things don’t often go together).

Departing from the north west of England.

Best I’ve come up with is: fly Madrid then train to Oviedo and another local train to Aviles.

Ignore COVID please, that’s another matter entirely.

When in November? Loathed to suggest them but Ryanair Manchester to Santander? They only fly Friday and Sunday in November about £30 each way (plus O'Leary taxes etc for sporting equipment obs)
Then the little train that runs along the coast to Aviles?

Not sure if I'd be prepared to trust them with specialist sporting equipment though - most times I've travelled Ryanair I've clutched my most precious possessions to my manly chest.

The Oviedo-asturias airport is actually in Avilés. There are ferries to Santander from the UK, Portsmouth, Southampton or Plymouth, not quite sure

I'm sure Mr O'Leary would point out that it is the ground handling operations rather than the airline that counts. Links to GHO below



I've lugged my basic bike around Europe and not really had an issue as long as your bike case is up to it.
