Pacific Northwest / Re: How to Return to Start on one way tour?

Thanks for the info guys.  As a novice at this touring thing, all of your ideas are appreciated.  I've considered most of the options mentioned, but having never done any of it, I just don't know what will work best for me.  I'm not an Amtrak fan either, maybe if I lived in the area that would be an option. 

I was considering a hard case, but John's input seems the simplest and I'm a simple guy.  In the coming months I'll have to nail down a start and finish and make contact with bike shops for shipping and packing.  Ok, progress!!

Until I think of something else...

Thanks

Pacific Northwest / How to Return to Start on one way tour?

Hello everyone. 

I'm a new member, but long time rider just getting around to touring. Long time coming! 

I'm in the planning stages for a Pacific Coast tour later this year and was wondering how to pull off a one way ride?  From Astoria to San Francisco for example.  Probably shorter, but that's a good place to begin.  I've tried a few searches, but couldn't hit the right key words for a satisfactory answer. 

What sort of transport/shipping methods would you suggest to get bike and self back to my starting point?  I'll probably be flying in with bike box and other gear that would have to stay at my starting location. I'm assuming it would be easier to fly in and out of the same airport, but maybe not. 

Any suggestions and info is greatly appreciated. 

Thanks

MikeP
