Bicycle parking at Zurich Airport

Does anyone have experience with cycling to the airport and leaving the bike there for a few days?
I saw there are bike racks, but can we use them for overnight parking, or even for multiple days? Also, how safe would that be?

Which part of Eastern Europe? I've been to that corner of the world a few times, and have to say I've loved each trip!

Did you end up parking your bike at the airport? If so, could you tell me what it looks like and how long you'll be gone?

But in all seriousness, do let me know if it worked out easily, might make use of the facilities myself in the future.

Re: Bicycle parking at Zurich Airport

bike and motorbike parking is - or was - freely available opposite arrivals opposite the head of the taxi queue.

Re: Bicycle parking at Zurich Airport

I can happily confirm that this bike commute to the airport still works. I just tested it over the weekend.
Thank you all for sharing your experiences.

Re: Bicycle parking at Zurich Airport

So I just learned that Swiss allows me to take my bike on the plane instead of a bag, which seems to be an even better option than just leaving it at the airport!
