Chicago Metra folding bike question
I'm planning an Amtrak point run to Naperville and a ride on the Illinois Prairie Path and Fox River Trail, and then take Metra to the loop to catch an Amtrak train back home.
I've read the Metra rules on blackout times and dates, maximum bikes per train, bungees, etc. One rule is that folders must be in a bag. Now if I'm traveling at a time when full size bikes are allowed, can I just wheel the unfolded bike on board and pretend it is a regular bike?
My wife and I have been all over the country on Amtrak with folders, and never had to bother with bags.
