Just don't bring your folding bike on Acela, otherwise you're fine. (Acela has no room even for a foldie)

In the Pacific NW, the Amtrak Cascades trains even have bike hooks for full size bikes!

You can run a pair, but it makes more sense to go for a modern LED headlamp, like an IQ Fly or IQ Cyo. You'll get way more light output, and less hub drag than even 1 halogen lamp.

Take out keys 10 sec. Unlock U lock, 10s. Stow U lock, 5s.

Helps that I have drum brakes and dynamo lights that I don't have to worry about. Just lock the frame to something with the U-lock.

I'm also looking for some touring options for the winter. Long Island is an easy option from the city, but pretty much any starting place within a 4 hour train ride of NYC is fine.
