General Discussion / No bikes on Amtrak Cardinal service?
« on: November 22, 2019, 02:18:28 pm »
I've been having a long e-mail discussion with Amtrak customer service because I found that no Cardinal trains have bike space available starting Jan. 2, 2020 through the limit of their reservation system. So far, all I have gotten from customer service is, "I'm sorry that you can't find bicycle availability. I suggest that you check other trains and cities."

Thing is, "0" availability starts the first of the year. There's plenty of space available before then. Also, it shows that there is no space for pets either. I suggested that the reservation system is wrong and customer service denies that is the case. I find it hard to believe that people are logging on every day and booking the next available day's bikes (6) and pets (5).

Is there anyone on this forum who is "in the know?" It is frustrating that I am getting the run-around here.

Classifieds / WTB: 2016 Surly Disc Trucker fork

I took a hard fall on my Surly recently and bent the fork. I'm looking for a 2016 Disc Trucker fork. This is the blue disc trucker and not the current blue long haul trucker. Surly doesn't have any available and I'd prefer not to buy the black one and paint it.


General Discussion / Crossing the upper Mississippi
« on: June 17, 2014, 11:43:04 pm »
I'm planning a multi-day ride along the Upper Mississippi between La Crosse, WI and Moline, IL. I'm having trouble finding information about ferries and bridges and which allow bicycles. Does anyone have a good source for this?
