Did some research to see how much it would cost to take my bike on my trip to Colorado next week. Airline wants $100 round trip to transport the bicycle. Then my ground transportation from the airport wants another $180 round trip! And this is assuming I use the cardboard box I took from my bike shop's dumpster. Otherwise I'd have to spend another $300 to buy a traveling case.
Shipping UPS ground would cost about $150 round trip, but I have a bike event here 2 days before my trip.
Everything's so expensive
