Where you can take a bicycle on a bus, train or airplane?

Notes about searching for a system: Use the pull-down menu to select transit systems by state. One problem that hasn't been addressed is transit systems that serve multiple states. For example, NewJersey Transit operates in Pennsylvania as well as New Jersey. One you see the systems listed by state, click details for more information. You may find that not all of the information is up-to-date. If you have current information to add to the database, click the edit link. If you see a system missing, please feel free add it. search here...

Granville Ride Report

I decided to venture out into the threatening skies to ride with Brett. We did the 52 mile route for Ridge Runner. It is well marked and a 80 and 100 mile route also exists. It started raining about ten miles in and lasted until we made it to Granville for a coffee and ice cream break. Then we had a tailwind until the finish line. I continued south back to my house and ended with 64 miles. Averaged 15.6mph. Climbed about 2100 feet. Great weather, even with the rain.
