Folding bikes and Amtrak trains

Just a photo from a recent trip to show how little room our Bromptons take up in the cargo hold of Amtrak bus. Great way to get out of cities and into the country to explore!

I make several trips a year with Amtrak, it's a great way to travel when you aren't pressed for time.
