Traveling to SoCal?

My daughter (who lives in Hollywood and does not own a car) has now had her second bike stolen in the past two years. After the first one, a nice new Bianchi Bergamo, was stolen I managed to acquire a Peugot cruiser for free from the local bike shop and then gave it to her on a trip down south. Well someone took a liking to the Peugot and cut through the lock and took it. I now have an old Huffy hybrid with grip shifters that's functional and I plan to give it to her if I can find a way to get it down to LA without too much expense. Anyone from NorCal heading to Southern California that might be willing to let the "beater" hitch a ride? I'm in the Auburn area just outside of Sacramento. Anyway, just a thought.

This is off-topic, but have you considered a folding bike for her, so she can take it inside wherever she goes? I have a couple of them and they're really quite nice (and inexpensive). Great for women for many reasons also.

Yeah, we looked at those before the "free" Peugot came along. The Huffy is here now and just sitting in the garage so I figured I could kill two birds with one stone...it leaves my garage and she gets something else to ride.
