Robert talks about taking your bike on the plane.  How to package it in a bike box, bag or solid case. Once packaged, what to expect at the airport. Issues with over-sized and over- weight items will cost you $$$. A set of options include shipping your bike by FedEx Ground, take it with you on the plane, use a bike shipping company (BikeFlights), or just rent a bike at your destination!Taking you bike on Amtrak is also discussed. Particularly in conjunction with riding the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal Towpath between Pittsburgh and Washington, DC. The 'Capitol Limited' has space for 8 bikes on that trip. Bike fee is $20*(*Bike fee subject to change without notice.).
