we had the same problem, I'm not bringing my bike as there is no way i'm riding with my huge backpack on. Anywhere i would want to ride its easy to hire a bike for a few days or so and I'm sure that would be less that the hassles and cost of bringing a bike with me everywhere.
If you really want a bike perhaps buy a second hand one when you get there and then when you've had enough sell it.

I think looking at a used bike is a good idea.

Loki:

I don't know where you're from, but if you are flying to Europe from overseas it may be costly to have the bike flown with you as luggage or shipped.

I would call the airline first and see what they say if this is the case
