Packing bag in CTC bag for Ryanair flight

I'm packing my bike up so it's ready for its first experience flying Ryanair Dublin to Leeds.
Got my CTC bag, my pipe lagging to wrap around the frame, I'm going to deflate the tyres, turn the handlebars in and remove the pedals.

This video is a good one for reminding me which way the wrench goes.
15mm at the ready.



My ingenious solution for getting the bike into the CTC bag (€13 from Wiggle)

Pipe lagging from Homebase (€5)

Old milk carton to protect rear deraileur
Changed the flimsy milk carton for my helmet, much better protection.
Fingers crossed it makes it to the other side unscathed.
