Amtrak - Bike Box - Advice?
So I'm taking my bike on Amtrak tomorrow. Apparently the only way is put the bike in their box (or any box) and check it as luggage. So got myself the Amtrak cardboard box. Anyone out there who has used their box and/or brought their bike on the train through checked baggage? Any advice on packing the bike?
So I got hte bike in, put towels around the front fork and rear fork to add some padding and to keep the bike from moving around. Although it really doesn't help the bike from moving around as the box just kind of bends/creases. I suppose it will be safe...assuming they're laying the box on it's side.
ANyways, any advice and experiences greatly appreciated.
