i ment this to be a reply to the taking the bike on th e bus post
D*ALEX is right call ahead, I know some people that took bikes on the bus thay had to box them up and bring them in the drivers and bag handlers toss them arround so pad the bike good with bubble wrap and your sleeping bag and what ever else you got. does the greyhound charge extra to haul your bike?
iI took the train 2 x they have boxes for 10 dollars you take off the pedals and turn the handle bars the wheels stay on and the bike rolls intothe box pad it and seal it up is the train an option?
you could also ride the bus home but go to a bikeshop get a box and ship the buike via ups.
