Just going to chime in with my personal experience--the GW bridge crossing is a real hassle. I actually threw my back out a year and a half ago trying to negotiate my touring bike and all my gear up and down the several flights of staircases on both approaches on and off the bridge. It's really not worth it, even if you take the time to unload on both sides, you're dealing with at least three distinct times when you will have to unload and carry stuff, while trying to run back and forth and make sure no one has stolen your bike or anything else.

Seriously, take a ferry to NJ, you have enough to worry about already in riding through it.
