A few months ago I wanted to take my bike to Portland, checked out tickets on Amtrak and read that my bike was over the weight limit. Apparently I'm not the only person who has been stopped in their tracks (too hard to resist that one) by this regulation.
Anyway, Travis at TRANSPORTland has sent a letter to Amtrak hoping to start conversation and maybe a trial period to see how Amtrak could adjust to coping with us cargo cyclists. If you would like to join the conversation and add your input, send in a message to Amtrak voicing your opinion or just see whats going on I invite you to visit the blogs listed below. Wouldn't it be awesome to travel with out bikes of all shapes and sizes!
