There is excellent, inexpensive, twice-a-day bus service between those two cities on Northwest POINT. The bus leaves from the same place as the train arrives. There's even TV and free WiFi on board. When I did it, I didn't take my bike with me, so you better call them to see what their policies are for that.

You can take unboxed bicycles for $5 and they go into the cargo hold beneath the bus.
This is for "regular" bicycles, though. Recumbents may be a different story. Best to contact Northwest Point.
