How is Greyhound at transporting bicycles specifically in California/Nevada?
My one experience here in BC was nearly a disaster. We followed the rules listed on the website, I called ahead to ask about it, we packed the bikes properly, went in to pay the extra for the bikes and were told that they no longer ship bikes via Greyhound unless freight is used. The problem with freight is that the bikes may be on a different schedule than your bus. At the time it was a weekend when freight was not open so we would have had to cancel our trip.
I only got our bikes on by crying and the lady felt so bad she let us go on with them.
I am going to take off along the coast route from BC to Northern Cali and once there may bus around to different locations (or just ride). My bike will be my main transportation.
My decision is whether to take my folding bike that is suitcase-able or to build a full size bike and trust Greyhound/other public transport around Fresno.
It would be easier to go the Bike Friday style route, and use a suitcase trailer, then just pop the bike in and check it as normal baggage.
However I am also pining for a Salsa Fargo and this would be more difficult to transport.
What is Greyhound like down there? Are there other bussing options more bike friendly?
