    Funny how in 2006 I came up with a rally outreach ROI sheet, and people thought it was too mechanical. Now an outside expert comes in with a similar idea and gets all the credibility.

    How to take your bike from Los Angeles to Fair Oaks on the train 

    bike sacramento Quick note for poor souls like myself seeking to make a SoCal->NorCal biking trip:

    So yes, you can place your bike in the in-train bike rack, as well as the cargo area of the bus (contrary to what Amtrak customer reps will tell you) without boxing it. There are some elements of uncertainty, however.

    Option 1: Carrying the bike with you

    1. Purchase your ticket

    2. Go to the Los Angeles Union Station, and print your ticket from one of the vending machines using your confirmation code.

    3. Await the train in line with your bike.

    4. When boarding starts, seek the car with the bike racks on them. During my OAK->SAC trip, the car was the last one. Can’t remember position of the LAX->OAK one.. I think it was about the third from the bottom.

      Update: now in order to use the bike racks on Amtrak trains, you need to reserve them in advance of time online.. at the Amtrak website..? I guess? If you didn’t reserve, and there is no dearth of bike racks on the train, the train officers will make constipated faces but will generally let you go. I Think MetroLink doesn’t care. Or it’s the other way around.
