Weekend "tour" and flying
My sister is getting married in Laramie, WYO this summer. I had planned to go on a long, around the U.S. tour immediately after the wedding, but I just got a great job and want to put a year into it before I leave. So, I've decided that I will take a few days off before the wedding, fly into Denver with my bike and panniers, and ride up to Laramie from Denver. I have a few questions though.
I've never packed my bike on a flight and wanted to know how difficult/challenging it will be to check it, etc (if there's a good checklist for flying with a bike, please point me to it).
I've also never ridden in Denver. I have taken 287 from Fort Collins to Laramie, so if anyone knows a good route for cycling north through and out of Denver, please let me know.
I'm still disappointed that I won't be going on my big tour around the U.S., but my wanderlust is stirring and I know I won't last long until I have to get up and go.
