Everything on travelling with a Friday
Hi there, all you experienced folder enthusiasts.
I got my Bike Friday NWT a month ago and will go on my first out of town trip with it Saturday, flying and driving to the resort town of Kenora, Ontario where I scored a week of contract work. I can walk the short distance to to work and will use the bike for evening exercise and maybe shopping and dining. I need some advice.
Do you get extra insurance when you fly with the bike? I've never owned a bike worth over $2k before or flown with any bike for that matter.
How do you lock up outside stores or restaurants when you are commuting or touring? I'll take the Kryptonite lock I use with my other bike...do you lock through the rear stays/rear wheel? Do thieves steal 20" wheels?
I'll be staying at a tower hotel and I plan to keep the bike in the trunk of my rental car rather than lug it up and down the elevator every day...what do you think of that?
Any other words of wisdom?
